This was my 2nd bourbon and in its defense it followed arguably the best bourbon I've had to date (Woodford Reserve) so I chose not to penalize it so much and to just take it for what it's worth. It's a solid bourbon. There are traces of citrus on the palate and bites like a tiger at first. It's in no way harsh though. Having bite isn't a negative. When it's accompanied by a short finish it can be, because once the bite loosens up and the finish lingers on, it really makes you want that 2nd sip. This had both; saber tooth bite and a short finish, which was sort of a bummer. It has arguably one of the coolest bottles (wine shaped) and graphics.

A very solid Bourbon, not as special as some single barrels, but very good none the less. For the price there is very little better.

I was initially enticed by the bottle design. When I got home and poured my first glass over a single ice cube I was hooked. This is an excellent bourbon whose quality far exceeds the price paid. Slightly sweet with an nice hint of spice and oak. This is a great sipping bourbon. It would probably be good with a mixer, but I just couldn't do that. I prefer mine with a single ice cube or a small splash of water. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a quality sipping bourbon.

Eagle Rare drinks far better than any other bourbon in the high $20/low $30 range, and even better than some of the more expensive bourbons. Flavors of oak, vanilla, and caramel dominate with a crisp and full bodied finish. Absolutely fantastic.

From the first I was hooked.It was a Christmas gift in 2010 and repeated again this year. Far too long to wait.

On nosing the whisky is very sweet with notes of fudge and toffee jumping out of the glass straight of the bat. This is followed by notes of dry wood and cinnamon through the middle of the aroma. The nose is finished off by hints of cumin, sweet malt and banana.On tasting there are again sweet notes of toffee, fudge and almond but this is balanced out hits of alcohol. Through the middle the softer spice notes become more prominent with hits of cinnamon and cardamom flooding the middle of the taste. The taste finishes with notes of wood, pine and a bitter almost herbal note.The finish is long with a lingering sweetness and a soft alcoholic note.Truly complex and fantastically well balanced this is an American whiskey worth looking out for!

Have been a fan of Buffalo Trace for a while, but never tried this before.First sniff gives you hints of caramel and mixed spice, almost like a Christmas pudding. It's really dry, with hints of orange and a very subtle hit of vanilla coming through.It's smooth, but it's got an edge to it that gives it a kick.Very happy with this.

Incredibly rich, not too sweet but with an almost burnt caramel flavour. Absolutely marvelous drink.

Never heard of this before but was recommended it by a bloke in the Whisky shop in Soho and it does not disappoint. I only ever drink bourbon neat and this is absolutely superb - just the right side of smooth but with incredibly complex flavours. You can savour a small amount or drink glass after glass and still come to it as though you were tasting it for the first time. Wonderful.

This has been my favorite bourbon for the past couple months. Prefer 1 ice cube over a whisky stone as the melted ice opens up more of the sweet flavors in this particular drink. Definitely flavorful, and for the price (locally can get it for $28.99) you can't go wrong.

This used to be one of the best bourbons on the market for the price. Complex, leather and toasted vanilla on the palate, real depth. Sometime in 2014 Buffalo Trace distillery changed the recipe and made this a small batch instead of a single barrel. This decreased the flavor depth and complexity by a long shot. Of course the price has stayed more or less the same and no indication of the change appears anywhere on the bottle. Bad form.

I had to go to three liquor stores before finding a bottle of Eagle Rare. I found the nose to be very sweet with hints of vanilla and fruit. The taste was similar to the nose being sweet with a smooth yet spicy finish. This was my favorite bourbon until I got midway through the bottle. I'm not sure if it was the bottle itself or the fact that I put it in the freezer for a couple days, but on New Years this bottle lost all its flavor and tasted like rubbing alcohol. This is certainly a bourbon worth trying, but I don't think I will risk buying another.

I think that this has to be one of the best Bourbon's on the market - and to think that I can buy a bottle for under £40...well thats like Christmas everyday! Buffalo Trace have really done themselves proud here - and yes, their Stagg line is their higher end signature batch, but the Stagg Jr for example has completely different tasting notes. Eagle Rare is rich and dry with lovely tasting notes which work well on its own, but equally good in an Old Fashioned with Orange and Orange Bitters. In fact, it is my Bourbon of choice for both an Old Fashioned and a Manhattan when I'm not using a heavy Rye.Enjoy...and enjoy again!

I'm usually more of a scotch drinker but like to give anything a try. Ordered a sample of this and am not disappointed. Very smooth stuff.I will definitly be ordering a bottle.

I discovered this bourbon while touring the Buffalo Trace distillery. They distill a lot of great bourbons and this has become one of my favorites. It is smooth, but full of flavor. I drink it on a single ice cube and it is perfect! You won't be disappointed in this bourbon.

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. Frank

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.
4th April 2014
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

Excellent and smooth. Got it for $20, will buy again.
