Egan’s Irish Whiskey continues to craft ground-breaking, innovative expressions with the latest release in its limited edition Legacy series, Legacy Reserve III. The third volume in this exceptional single malt series is hand-selected by the Egan family, aged for 17 years in American Bourbon casks and finished in French Cadillac AOC casks.
Limited to just 1000 bottles worldwide and 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. Cadillac is a French appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) for a sweet white wine made from Biturica vines on the hillsides of the Entre-Deux-Mers subregion of Bordeaux, taking its name from the town of Cadillac (not the car!).
