Review: Eagle Rare 17 yr. old (2008 release)
Eagle Rare, 17 year old, 45%, $65
The other whiskeys in the Antique Collection get all the attention but, for the past few years, Eagle Rare 17 yr. bourbon has been very impressive. Vanilla taffy, caramel almonds, maple syrup and candy corn, with balancing notes of polished leather, summer fruit, a dusting of cinnamon, mocha and soft mint. The flavors are nicely integrated with good depth. A rock solid effort that will not disappoint.
