What's in a name? Eagle Rare 10 Year Old 75cl whiskey is called whiskey because it's produced in America. Were it from Scotland it would be spelled Eagle Rare 10 Year Old 75cl whisky, rather than whiskey.
Nose: Thick, spicy. Sharp citrus, stewed fruits. Mochaccino, seed cake and leather.
Palate: Supple, rounded. Fruit and fudge, spicy vanilla. Mixed conserves.
Finish: Long, spiced, a touch of smoky marmalade - if there could be such a thing!
I get a lot of rye on the nose. Together with oak, pepper, leather and some honey.
On the palet it's vanilla, spiciness, some nutmeg and hints of honey.
The finish is long and again a lot of spiciness going on.
This is great value for money. I add a half teaspoon of water to get it to its sweetspot. But that's personal preference.

While bourbons aren't my favorite, this is decent in flavor (a nice bit of spice) and aroma, but a bit rough in the back. Karl

Chocolate sugary sweetness and nice rye taste too. This should be 100 proof, it screams for it! Flavour is so big, but body doesn't compare. Very good and one of my favorites still.

Great bourbon. Smooth, oh so smooth. Initial sweetness, and that spicy finish that I love in a bourbon. Very drinkable. Who's for another?

If you drink Woodford Reserve, Basel Haydn's, or any other higher-priced bourbons, put them down and give this one a try. Just as good and at a much better price point. My favorite bourbon by far!

I love this bourbon. It has that big boldness that you want in your bourbon but it is also one of the smoothest bourbons I have ever had. Love that it is a little higher proof as well. Delicious.
