Changed Recipe...Lower Quality
Its called Eagle Rare for a reason
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.

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
