Egan's Irish Single Malt

Egan's is a new Irish Whiskey in the U.S. It's a sourced, ten year old single malt. There are only two possible sources of Irish single malt from ten years ago: Bushmill's and Cooley, and Cooley sold a lot more of their whiskey to other bottlers.

Egan's Single Malt, 10 year old, 47% abv ($50)

The nose has grapes and sherry notes. The palate is fruity sweet in a grape soda sort of way with some malt notes at the back. Fruit continues into the finish.

This is a decent, fruity Irish malt. If you're a fan of sweeter, fruity malts, it's worth trying.

Thanks to Josh from The Whiskey Jug for the sample (and see his review of Egan's as well).

So, you're saying this is a Bushmill's?

The Whiskey Jug's review says his review was based on a sample. Just how large was his sample if he shared it with you?

I don't know what it is, but Cooley has sold more to independent bottlers.

The sample was a full bottle.

Full bottle samples? I may have to rethink my "no samples" policy....

Or just become friends with Josh. He's drowning in them.
