Eagle Rare 10 Year Old
William,
Another very smooth and flavorful bourbon. Eagle Rare and Buffalo Trace are tied as my number two choices. You can’t go wrong with this bourbon!

Richard,
It's pretty good. not that interesting. Finish is really short. Not sure what all the fuss is about, I actually prefer the basic Buffalo Trace.

Easy to drink wheated bourbon

Aaron,
Kind of a cinnamon spiciness but not too overwhelming and still definitely has that caramel/vanilla sweetness. I could see this being good in fall and Christmas themed drinks. To me, this is the bourbon equivalent of Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky, but less “eggnoggy.”

Buffalo Trace and this are very close in terms of my favorite bourbons. I’d give the slight edge to Buffalo Trace but this is soooo close. The nose is pleasant with apples and pear and the slightest bit of spice. The taste is great with vanilla and sweetness similar to fruit but not too fruity where it’s overwhelming. Amazing bourbon and worth a try.

The Buffalo Trace mash bill with a bit more aging and tender care. It drinks more smoothly than BT, and I have found it to be a wonderful bottle to gift because it's accessible by new drinkers, presents well, and is relatively, well, rare.

Robert,
Eagle Rare is always terrific. Please do not send any more tasting boxes for scotch or straight rye boubon

Paige,
What a beautiful creation. The nose is rich with spice, caramel, vanilla and cherries. Through the first sip, a slightly smoky and dry oak shine through with hints of butterscotch and fruits. Each subsequent taste brings more cinnamon, nutmeg, apricot and plums into a wonderful complexly medium finish urging for another drink. One of the best bourbons for your buck, period.

Rod,
I was very impressed with this bourbon. Great nose, sweet, great finish. For the price, much better value than more expensive bourbons. Just became one of my favorites. (Along with Joseph Magnus and Blanton's)

Sweet, very good , very similar to buffalo trace

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.

David,
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.

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.

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.

Nick,
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.

Amazing budget bourbon. Costs $35 (in Oregon), drinks like a $50+ bottle.

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