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).
