"Butterscotch and grain come through on the aroma of Egan's Centenary, and the palate is bright, citrusy, and easy to drink. There's a hint of vanilla, and a subtle almond note as well. It's light-bodied, as one might expect from an Irish blend, but one might also anticipate a little more oomph from one finished in ex-cognac XO barrels and selling at a premium. This doesn't quite deliver that, but it's an enjoyable whiskey."
