Xmas Gifts Parade 2020 : Lambay Whiskey

It seems that the bottles which appear in liqueur stores this Christmas period are not average at all. What to think of this one: Lambay Whiskey, a triple distilled Irish whiskey, soft and smooth… but also finished in cognac casks. A full-bodied spirit with notes of malt, flora, almonds and pepper. 

Cocktail? For me this really screams for an Old Fashioned or Sazerac style of drink. Let’s go for the first option in a recipe that let’s the cask speak for itself. This cocktail is smooth as a silk sheet with soft herbal notes. 

The Old Barrel

60 ml Lambay Whiskey (cognac finish)
15 ml Benedictine
15 ml Gonzalez Byass AB (Amontillado sherry)
2 dashes Angostura bitters

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass with lots of ice. Stir for 15 seconds and strain in a tumbler with a big rock of ice. Garnish with a cocktail cherry.
