Eagle Rare 17 year old, 45%

Price: $80 Issue: Summer 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

Usually the sleeper of the Collection. Toffee mixed with cinnamon, mocha, añejo rum, golden raisin, dried citrus, and tobacco, with firm leather and oak on the finish. Last year's release was more balanced and a great expression of the brand, but I'm afraid this release is a little heavy on the oak; particularly on the finish. Buffalo Trace Antique Collection 2015 Release.
