The only Bourbon to ever win the double gold medal five times.

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.  

Eagle Rare 10YO Bourbon was aged for 10 years in new oak casks. It has claimed over 30 awards in the past decade, including 5 Double Gold medals at the SFWSC. In terms of price/quality ratio, you would be hard pressed to find a better value Bourbon as this one. Bourbon bang-for-the-buck of the year. And pretty quite damn spectacular as well.

Sweet, very good , very similar to buffalo trace
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Nose is very similar to Buffalo Trace, sweet, with just a mild hint of toffee. First sip is surprisingly mellow, just a little sweet, with an oilier mouthfeel than Buffalo Trace, pleasantly different. Subtle notes of cinnamon and nutmeg start to show, before a lingering dry baking spice finish. With a few drops of water, this really shines. I started picking up apple on the nose, and the flavor on the front of the palate along with a little vanilla. The baking spices, particularly the cinnamon, still shine through a nice finish.

Tasted alongside Woodford and Evan Williams White Label, and this just didn't hold up to either. Some light cinnamon notes, but the flavor is a bit flat.

Sweet and leather

Darin,
Yum. Buffalo Trace was lost on me until I had Eagle Rare. A hearty grainier bourbon, Eagle Rare has a robust flavor complexity that is easy to drink and fun to drink explore.

Favorite so far, slightly sweet, complex, without any one flavor overpowering.

My favorite Bourbon. Has one of the best Buffalo Trace mashbills, and just enough oak/wood taste and burn... Really good and lasting finish, as well.

Excellent bourbon for the price. Taste like a more expensive bottle. Very smooth. Not much burn. Clean finish.

As a burgeoning bourbon aficionado, my collection is still rather small. As such, the Eagle Rare 10 Year is the first bourbon with an age statement that I have purchased, and despite the fact that the high speed bottling line used by Buffalo Trace prevents them from any longer using the "single barrel" descriptor, this is technically my first single barrel as well. With those attributes in mind, along with the bottle's stellar reviews and recommendations, I was very eager to try this one. At $35, my wallet was eager to let me. The nose is citrusy sweet with orange and honey dominating and the smell of the charred oak tagging onto the end. The palate is oily enough to coat the mouth without being too thick and the taste is sweet. The citrus continues and is aided by dark cherries and brown sugar caramel. As it hits the back of the tongue, the flavor brings the spice of cinnamon and pepper with the charred oak becoming more prominent. The finish is moderately long and pleasant with lingering honey, vanilla, and faint chocolate. I almost hesitate to add yet another positve review to the growing library of Eagle Rare commentary lest the fine folks at Buffalo Trace finally wise up and charge what this bottle is worth. In the mean time, grab a bottle, pour it neat or on the rocks, and find somewhere quiet to sip it and watch the sun set.

A little sharp and oily. Tastes like it needs more time in the barrel, a very sharp flavor and nose.

James
James,
For an ultra-low rye, it's amazing. I like mine on ice and without ice I like it with a good medium rare steak. Was one of the first Bourbons I've tried and have not regretted it.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
The next logical step up from Buffalo Trace is this (as some would say) 10yr version. A must have staple for anyone lucky enough to grab one for under $40. Aromatics: nicely aged Oak, caramel and a Madagascar vanilla spice that just fills the air with a faint scent of something floral. Taste: a bit of rye spice with lingering butterscotch and Cracker Jack popcorn and peanuts. There is an orange citrus sweet and sour finish that simmers in the spice and lingers on for a bit. I will be getting more to replace what I just opened.

Mike,
One of my favorites. Great neat or on the rocks and makes a killer mint julep if you're in the mood for a summer cocktail!

Strong alcohol fire on the palate, cools down with a sweet kick
 
Trevor
Trevor,
Alex is spot on - good go to bourbon. Consistent. Good enough to serve to friends, and satisfying alone. Complex enough to keep me interested each sip.
 
Taylor
Taylor,
With hints of burnt caramel and sugar, this $35 bottle of bourbon is delicious. I also picked up on more floral and perfume like flavors that kind if remind me ever so slightly of Jack Daniels. It had a nice, smooth, and spicy finish that really brings it all together for this bottle. I'd say it's value really makes it great. This will be another staple bottle on my shelf.
 
Alex
Alex,
My go to budget Bourbon. Got a little barrel punch which I like. Perfect for when I just want a good bourbon and dont want to think about it.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Smooth. Good by the dram or in a mixed drink.
 
Michael
Michael,
This is a very drinkable bourbon for the price. I have sampled it both neat and in a mint julep and it worked well in both. This is one of the most enjoyable bourbons I have drank, better than some of the higher end ones I have tried.

If you like Buffalo Trace bourbon, this is the older brother. Good complexity and linger.

What else can you get with this quality and depth of flavor for sub-40 dollars? Hint: You can't. Sweet easy drinking bourbon.

Everything they make is world class and each a little different. the key word here is Rare, I think its going to be harder and harder to capture this smoothy.
 
Stephen

Easy to drink but the mouth feel is very watery.
 
Bret
Bret,
My go to! Great neat, or in your favorite mixture. Smooth from the beginning. Traces of caramel and vanilla linger through a long, spicey finish. You will be hard pressed to find a better bourbon for the price!

Kevin
Kevin,
For the money its s great drink!!
 
Pete
Pete,
For the price point, this lives up to the hype. Soft, subtle nose of oak, toffee, vanilla and toasted coconut. The front of the palate is surprisingly spicy, giving way to oak tannins, vanilla, more toasted coconut and a hint of mint on the finish. Nice after dinner sipper.
 
Oliver
Oliver,
Absolutely the finest bourbon for the price. Delightful sipper, nice and sweet and smooth, and it mixes very well.

Great sipping bourbon Smooth slightly sweet, light spice note good Carmel and wood notes medium finish
 
Chris
Chris,
Used to like this a lot more when it was single barrel but they have since moved to blended making it all fairly uniform instead of never knowing exactly how the next bottle was going to taste. A bit rougher on the palate but an easy enough finish.

Sweet and smooth. Kind of too smooth and missing other flavors.
 
Denmon
Denmon,
Best bourbon there is. Especially for what it costs. Eagle Rare can easily stand up to the big $150 bourbons.
 
JR
JR,
This is my go to bourbon, especially if I am offering to folks who may not go for whiskey. So smooth, and with an interesting blend of sweet vanilla notes and oak-y flavor that I always poor a little more than I should when I pull this bottle off the shelf.
 
Michael
Michael,
Consumed neat. Just a damn good bourbon.
 
Trey

Too sweet
 
James
James,
I found the candy notes to be not as satisfying of a bourbon sweetness, but this was a fairly popular one with my friends in a blind tasting. Overall solid dram.
 
Ben
Ben,
Favorite Mid-tier Bourbon. This will be served at our wedding.
 
Derek

Very nice, especially for the price!
 
Rob
Rob,
This is the smoothest bourbon I have run across to date. Great straight or mixed in your favorite cocktail. If it was any smoother, it would probably be illegal. Not too sweet and not bitter. It has just enough bite to leave no doubt about the fact that it’s the real deal. If you like bourbon, you’ll love Eagle Rare.
 
Joe
Joe,
Like it . Its It's a very solid safe go to if you're bringing it to the party to share.

Cris
Cris,
One of my favorite's along with Buffalo Trace! Very smooth with caramel notes. Will always keep this one stocked in my private reserve.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Buffalo Trace (those crafty mad-men in Kentucky) took bourbon, and aged like scotch. The result is a more refined flavor, and texture that only ten years can provide. Oaky, sweet, smells of vanilla; a fine spirit for the fine lady and gentleman. It has enough strength to push you over, yet has enough restraint to allow you to enjoy it. It's not easy to find. And when it IS on the shelf, its gone quickly. $30-$40 is the average price for a bottle, and it is money very well spent.
 
Ian
Ian,
A wonderful bourbon that's surprisingly cheap for how smooth it is. There are a lot of sweet and spicy notes that are well balanced.
 
Carl
Carl,
Great for its price point
 
Steven
Steven,
It definitely falls in line with the other Buffalo Trace bourbons with slightly more refinement than the basic Buffalo Trace bottles, but not as much complexity as the Blanton's Original. The profile is less on the sweet spectrum and more on the spicy side to me, but just as smooth as what you'd expect.

This is my favorite all around bourbon. This is sipping stuff at its greatest. Lucky to have found it in my area as the distributors are stingy with it.
