Fantastic and Smooth Grain Irish Whiskey.

In Ireland, Egan means business. The Egan family have been making Whiskey since the 1800s and the current rivers of Spirit are made by the sixth generation. Patrick J. Egan, a benevolent and workaholic founder of the Egan's distillery, once said the Irish people should not consume English and Scotch beverages if there's great Irish booze to be enjoyed. The company went under in the Sixties, but in 2013, the descendants resurrected the brand as a bottling company and launched their first expression the following year.

One of the loveliest expressions must be their Vintage Grain, made from a mix of grains with a column still, which is a welcome detour from pot-still, all-barley Irish Malts. Put in ex-Bourbon casks in the year when everyone was crazy about blue creatures of Pandora, and bottled in 2017, it is a potion to behold. Pale gold color brings soft aromas and flavors of oak and leather. The warm Spirit is perfect for an easy sipping either neat or on rocks, but nobody will hold it against you if you use it for a smooth Vintage Tullamore cocktail (add sweet vermouth, Campari and orange bitters).

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Irish Whiskey became the most renowned Whiskey and most popular Spirit in the 19th century after the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.
Poteen is a Whiskey made from potatoes, or in other words: it's Irish Vodka.
Whiskey producers lose on average about 2% of their stock a year to angels' share. For Jameson, the biggest one of the Irish Whiskey brands, it means 29 thousand bottles going into the air (literally) every day!
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
There are many Irish Whiskey varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known. Then there is Poitin, one of the first Spirits ever made.
