    I want to hate this but I dont. It’s not highly interesting and a bit watery. But it’s supposed to be. For what they claim they set out to do they’ve accomplished. It’s an entry level scotch but it’s full of banana and fruit and it is very pleasant.

    One of my go to’s. I’m surprised this isn’t rated higher. Then again I haven’t revisited the 12 in a while but for me this is just got enough wood, fruity character and light smoke to make me smile .

    I go back and forth on this one. I consistently read about its value, scarcity and quality. I’m a buffalo trace fan so it’s hard for me to go against the grain i help establish, but Eagle Rare has some odd unique but indistinct flavor profile I just can’t get behind. It’s not doll but it’s briney and astringent and off-putting. The rest of the experience is great...mouthfeel, initial burst...but that lingering aftertaste makes me wince. 3 different bottles now from 3 different sources makes me comfortable even putting this out there. Sorry BT. I’ll still vouch for eagle rare because so many do but it is far from my favorite.

    Easy and pleasant. Lots of banana Runtz on the nose and palate. Borderline sickly sweet though I’m sensitive to that. Unique mash bill and definitely worth pursuing though not for everyone. My wife’s favorite dram of all time.

    The finest Irish whiskey I’ve ever encountered. This is liquid gold. Side by side with Redbreast 12 or 15 they don’t hold a candle to this masterpiece. So rich and so full. Everything I could ever want in a whiskey.

    Kind of has no identity. There’s candy and spice and it’s a full blast of flavor for sure but hard to pin down. I’m not sure I’m a huge fan.

    Tastes like straight lemon poppyseed muffins. I find that to be odd but this is some woody and char rich whiskey. Very distinct and very good

    Solid but flawed. Tastes young and runs a bit hot.
