Eagle Rare 17 year old (bottled Spring 2012), 45%

Price: $70 Issue: Winter 2012 Reviewer: John Hansell

Usually the least talked-about in the Antique Collection, but in my opinion certainly of the same caliber. This year's release proves my point: nutty toffee and rummy molasses notes balanced nicely with dried fruit, cinnamon, polished oak, subtle leather, and tobacco. The oak is kept in check for such an age, and all the flavors work well together. Nicely done!
