Egan’s Whiskey is an old Irish brand from Tullamore that has been resurrected by the descendants of Patrick Egan, who first founded the brand over 150 years ago. Although the whiskey is sourced from an undisclosed Irish distillery, the final product is made unique through secondary cask finishing and select batching.
Launched in 2018, Legacy Reserve was aged for 15 years in American bourbon casks. Only 1,000 bottles were produced. Non-chillfiltered and bottled at 46%.
Nose: An unmistakable Irish single malt nose. Creamy with notes of apple and citrus. Toffee and vanilla add complexity.
Palate: Full bodied as one would expect from a single malt of this age. Lemon peel and pepper with some oak dryness.
Finish: Big finish and what appears to be an endless aftertaste.
