Bourbon Whiskey - 2013
International Wine & Spirit Competition
Worldwide Whiskey - Bourbon - 2013
Insider knowledge: Eagle Rare 10 Year Old whiskey is named whiskey by virtue of the fact it's from America. If distilled in Scotland the spelling would be Eagle Rare 10 Year Old whisky, as opposed to whiskey.
I drink it neat. A great whiskey doesn't need ice, or a mixer. It has an even, long finish, and a very balanced and smooth front note. It has quickly become my favorite.

We don't have a lot of American whiskies sold here in Estonia, so when I saw this today in one of Tallinn's best liquor stores, I didn't think too long. Having tried all kinds of Scotch for about a year, I had longed for a good entry into bourbon world for quite a while. And I think this is as good an entry as it gets. At first it felt spicier than I had expected, but that was probably just my tongue getting used to it. The 2nd and 3rd sip were already perfectly balanced and now I'm on my 4th glass. Very smooth and easy to drink, yet you feel that it is special stuff. Nice long vanilla aftertaste. Definitely a good buy.

Smooth, smooth, smooth, and incredibly delicious, lots of Vanilla and caramel with smoke at the end, Angel light on the tongue, an absolutely beautiful sipping whiskey, one of my favourites
