Eagle Rare 10 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1023471 Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark Sweet candy shop, nougat, and honeycomb flavors are underscored by some funky earth and mushroom notes. The palate is sweet and lively, delivering orange peel and subtle hints of baking spice. Overall a pleasant pour, with the only criticism that it feels rather light-bodied, with the oak a bit sharp. Adding water makes this bourbon feel underpowered and hollow, but it is a fine sipper otherwise. (JL, Summer 2019) Inner quote mark

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Ten years of barrel time has created a concentrated caramel scent and palate spiked with sarsaparilla and allspice, finishing spicy and quite hot, with a fleeting orange peel note. Balances with a bit of branchwater, but needs a light touch. *Best Buy* (KN) Inner quote mark (7/2015)

K&L Notes

Buffalo Trace, which produces Eagle Rare, was named Distiller of the Year by Whisky Magazine in 2005 and 2007 and by Wine Enthusiast in 2006. F. Paul Pacult of the Spirit Journal gave the brand four stars and said: "Easily one of the most tactile yet assertive and expressive bourbons I've tasted in the last two years; fasten your seatbelts." Honey-colored, with aromas of toasted wheat bread and hints of tobacco, opening up to almond butter, melon, and lanolin. On the palate it is oily and toasty with flavors of cereal grains and oak. The finish is long and corn sweet with a little spice.

10 year old Bourbon for a hot price. Buffalo Trace's classic whiskey is still a steal of a deal.
