Egan's Vintage Grain Single Grain
Egan's // Ireland
Introduced in 2017, this is the second release from Egan's, a revived Irish whiskey brand. This sourced single grain whiskey is aged for 8 years in ex-bourbon barrels. It is non chill-filtered and bottled at 46% ABV.
Single GrainDistilled from a grain or mixture of grains, usually corn, wheat, or barley from one distillery, if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in barrels.
"Egan's attempt to revive the neglected single grain style of Irish whiskey offers the light and grainy notes one might expect. Aromatically it is all apples, pears and vanilla, with a characteristic hint of Irish triple distillation. Smooth and lightly honeyed on the mid-palate, leading to an appetizing and surprisingly lengthy finish for such a modest whiskey."
