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 10 Year old Bourbon Single Barrel 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 quite spectacular as well.
Member Reviews and Ratings of Eagle Rare 10 Year Old
One of my favorites
I've had friends pick Eagle Rare over Blanton's in a blind taste test, it' strikingly similar to its older and pricier cousin, and half the price! I name this the second best bourbon on the planet, considering its 'nothin wrong with this' great flavor and very affordable price tag. Smooth, sweet, & plenty of bite, this is an excellent neat sipper and affordable enough to use as a mixer. Eagle Rare is special.
Definitely a solid value for the price point. At $32 at my local store, you can’t beat it!
Smooth perfect pairing with a rough work week!
Caramel, rich, smooth
Very smooth, no expert, but to me, this is excellent bourbon. Loved it.
One of my favorites. Perfect Old Fashioned
Not bad but not a favorite for me
Excellent bourbon! Hints of black licorice with honey and fruit.
Love it. Great bottle thats cheap.
Spicy finish but not too harsh. Smells great.
This is the best everyday burbon out there at an average price of $30. If you have not tried this burbon it should be the next bottle you buy no matter what. Please enjoy it neat or with a iceball.
Good bourbon. Has a little hot finish, but at $30 very solid. Smooth like all Buffalo Trace Distillery products.
Ok, not great. Has a little bit of a grassy taste to it. It was worth trying for the price, but will not be my go to drink.
We drink this when we can't find Blanton's
Very nice flavor, easy to drink. Second only to Blanton. Enjoyed it very much.
Very strong flavor, has some bite to it.
Unnecessarily harsh with some diacetyl taste. Much better alternatives available at this price.
Very tasteful and smooth. No burn or bite. Not overpowering.
For the money you won’t find a better tasting bourbon with smoothness and just the right bite!
Good mix of aroma, caramel and vanilla, with a very light hint of leather. Great finish lingering of honey and rye. This is one I will keep on hand .
Best value for the money for sure. Definitely pick up the honey and orange peel. Also picking up some maple notes.
The best bang for your buck.
A sharp bourbon to start that finishes with great sweet flavors
The nose is sweet, fruity with some vanilla. Up front I get some hints of honey, pear and vanilla that give way to oak, and allspice. Nice long warming finish. For the price this is a fantastic bourbon. Will certainly be a staple in my cabinet now.
Loved it , really great bourbon. smooth taste, great finish. would recommend to my fellow connisuers
Really good, but seems to have a bit of a burn to it.
This is one of my go to bourbons
Love the 10 year especially in a store pick.
One of the best values still readily available (at least in St. Louis). Can Taste the age on this one. Oaky and a bit smoky with caramel and vanilla.
Loved it. Great finish and a super smooth taste.
One of the smoothest bourbons I’ve ever tasted. I highly recommend this bottle, won’t be disappointed
Found it harsh. Was expecting it to be smooth, since it is 10yr old.
Love this, my fav bourbon in a Old Fashioned! Try it with a splash of Grand Marnier.
Found a bottle recently and has an earthy taste
Bought a bottle of this bourbon a little while back and absolutely loved it! Very affordable an excellent "tipple!"
One of my favorites. Warm, sweet and a comfortable hint of spice. On top of that the price won't kill you.
The best Bourbon on my bartop, hands down. Price is right, flavor is all there, highly recommended.
Smoooooooth. Maple aromas. Easy on the palate with just a tinge on the back end that surprises you. Not as flavorful as I would like, but the easy-approachability makes up for it.
Nice sipper, Carmel vanilla with a slight warmth
Sweet and smooth with a nice long, slightly spicey, finish. Great bourban for the price!
Vanilla and butterscotch palate and spicy finish. Great value for its price range.
Smooooooooooooth. But not cloying. GreT Spicy finish
Smooth with Spicy finish
Nice flavored bourbon
Not as good as Blanton's (both from Buffalo Trace) but good. A bit more bite but great flavor and finish. One of my go-too's!
The bottle no longer says 10 year old. Some questions if is still aged as described
Very good bourbon. Very good price.
Such a unique flavor profile makes ER stand out. No other bourbon is comparable. The 17-year is even better if you can ever get your hands on it.
Excellent mixing bourbon. Somewhat harsh as a sipper.
Great bourbon. Easy to find and drink.
One of the best bargains out there when you can find it. Great flavor profile
Juuuust fine. Especially at its price point.
Very happy with eagle rare, best I have tasted in my short foray into whiskies.
Great every day bourbon. Nose of citrus. Sweet up front. Finish of caramel, leather and rye. Smooth and easy to sip neat. Excellent for the price.
Not bad for the price but I wouldn't go looking for it!
Great after taste, stays with you and lingers and transforms
I agree with the flavor spiral but would add oak to it. It's got a very nice dry oak flavor to it without being very smoky. Very smooth and easy to drink. Great price point as well.
Great for an evening in with friends
Sweet Caramel w little smoke
Favourite Bourbon for easy drinking. Smooth, spicy and sweet
This is my go-to bourbon. Initially sweet with a nice mild burn at the end. My absolute favorite.
Beautiful bourbon in an equally beautiful bottle! Equally great in a Manhattan or straight up.
An awesome bourbon. Smooth and spicy, witha slight sweetness. Caramel vanilla finish with just the slightest bourbon warmth that keeps you wanting more.
Great bourbon! Love the nose! Winner in many personal head to head tastings!
The best under $35
Like God made it himself.
Love the maple.
Good value. I prefer Buffalo Trace or Four Roses Small Batch at this price point. The Eagle Rare 17 year I've never gotten my hands on...
Love it. Can't find it. Dang
Absolutely incredible! Best I have had.
A fantastic bourbon with a nice warmth
Fantastic bourbon! Sweet, smooth, and well balanced.
Smooth but yet enough bite to let you know yup that's some bourbon
One of my all time favorites! It's great served by itself or mixed in a drink.
