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 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.

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!

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

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.

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
