Award winning Irish brand launch new Legacy Whiskey

by Rachel Darcy

An Irish Whiskey brand have just announced the latest release in their limited edition Legacy collection, with the malt hand selected by the family behind the brand.

Egan’s Irish Whiskey have just released Legacy Reserve III, the third volume in their single malt series, which was hand-selected by the Egan family. The malt was aged for 17 years in American Bourbon casks and finished in French Cadillac AOC casks.

Limited to just 1000 bottles worldwide, with less than 100 for the Irish market, the Cadillac cask finish adds a beautiful vanilla nose with hints of honey, acacia, honeysuckle, vanilla, citrus and apricot and a buttery mouthfeel, with baked peaches, pears, and honeyed apricots giving way to a nectar aftertaste.

The Egan family name is synonymous with Irish whiskey, as P.&H. Egan was established in 1852 and became one of Ireland’s largest merchant houses, bonders and bottlers for 116 years. Reimagined in 2013 by the fifth and sixth generation Maurice and Jonathan Egan, today Egan’s Irish Whiskey is recognised for its single malt and single grain Irish whiskey.

Legacy Reserve III is bottled at 46% ABV, with RRP for the bottle at €170, and and is available to order now from Celtic Whiskey Shop. This limited release follows an impressive run of awards from Egan’s Irish Whiskey in the last month.

Egan’s Irish Whiskey is distributed by Intrepid Spirits through Celtic Whiskey Shop, Classic Drinks, Drinks Genius and MCM Spirits and is available at Celtic Whiskey Shop, James Fox, Deveney’s Dundrum, and all leading independent retailers.
