Egan's 17 year old Legacy Reserve III Cadillac Cask-Finished, 46%

Price: $200 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




The golden-sweet wine finish works like a sunbeam from heaven. The nose basks in summer meadow flowers, sweet honey, light citrus, lemon curd, and vanilla. It's finely structured on the palate, with apricot pastries, runny honey, sugar-coated orange, peach cobbler, candied peel, and the lightest of spices. These Legacy bottlings are pretty special, but this beguiling whiskey is really one to fall for. (1,000 bottles)
