Two decades, a pair of beautiful eagles, one exquisite Whiskey.

The Eagle Rare Bourbon was created by Seagram master distiller Charles L. Beam and introduced in 1975. It stands as one of the last new Bourbon brands introduced before the current era of small-batch Bourbons. In the years since it was acquired by numerous companies before it became a part of the Buffalo Trace Distillery. It’s one of the many great Whiskeys that the oldest continuously operating Spirit-making establishment in the United States makes. They started distilling one year before the Declaration of Independence was signed, and they were allowed to keep their stills running during Prohibition.

These rare eagles are a bunch of super-desirable Whiskeys, no doubt about it. Then there's the Double Eagle Very Rare. This 20-year-old is simply on another level. It's twice the age of the standard 10-year-old, but the name refers to the super-snazzy and luxurious bottle as well. One beautiful glass eagle figurine is perched atop the bottle in the form of a stopper, the second is inside the exquisite hand-blown decanter. Then there's the juice itself ― magnificent just begins to describe it. Yeah, it's spent two decades in oak, yet it's so perfectly balanced with that oakiness never overpowering the vanilla and caramel notes. It's one to display proudly ― or hide and guard jealously, since less than 300 were made.

Appearance / Color
Dark Mahogany

Nose / Aroma / Smell
It's a wonderfully balanced nose with vanilla, caramel, and toasted oak notes.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The oakiness of a well-aged Bourbon is definitely the star of the show, yet it somehow never oversteps its boundaries, with vanilla, honey, brown sugar, and a hint of white pepper in there.

Finish
A pleasant sweetness lingers on the finish with additional vanilla, toffee, and a trace of leather.

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.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
