Eagle Rare 10 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey
The Eagle Rare 10 Year Bourbon was created by Seagram master distiller Charles L. Beam and introduced in 1975. It stands as one of the last new Bourbon brands introduced before the current era of small batch Bourbons. In the years since it was acquired by numerous companies before it became a part of the Buffalo Trace Distillery.
Eagle Rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is masterfully crafted and carefully aged for no less than ten years. The rareness of this great breed of bourbon is evident in its complex aroma, as well as the smooth and lingering taste. Eagle Rare is a bourbon that lives up to its name with its lofty, distinctive taste experience.
A top-quality bourbon from Buffalo Trace, the Eagle Rare 10yo is deliciously fragrant and woody, and has to be one of the best bargains available in this price range. This Bourbon was aged for 10 years in new oak casks. It has claimed over 30 awards in the past decade, including 5 Double Gold medals at the SFWSC. In terms of price/quality ratio, you would be hard pressed to find a better value Bourbon as this one. Bourbon bang-for-the-buck of the year. And pretty quite damn spectacular as well.
