.eagle rare – 10yo

whiskyspeller_dbtd_bourbon_11

From the Buffalo Trace Distillery comes this Eagle Rare 10 year old. That is about as much I can tell you about it. Probably created from its own mashbill or from a special place in the warehouse, or maybe even from a selection of cask where that one rare eagle has hatched from. I really couldn’t tell you.

45% abv, €42
straight bourbon

Palate: sweet, vanilla, caramel, treacle honey, liquorice honey, spicy, white pepper, grain, rye, ryebread, creamy, wood, pencil shavings, nuts, walnuts, dlightly dry
Finish: warm, long, spicy, cinnamon, star anise, liquorice root, fruit, warm caramel apples, warm apple pie

Conclusion: Yes, give me a bottle please. How come this is so good, aged for a long time (in bourbon years) and so ridiculously affordable? Has it been tampered with? Coloured? Added flavourings? Please inform my ignorant brain…
