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.

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…
