Eagle Rare 10 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USA
Reviewed February 20, 2023 (edited February 23, 2023)
Fiesta Liquor Store Pick, Mesa AZ. (As I have already reviewed this bourbon, this review will focus on the differences between the store pick and the standard. For my records only, and probably useless to anyone outside the Phoenix, AZ area) Bouquet is a little more floral and oaky than the norm. Also more ethanol which is not a plus. And it very much carries into the opening notes of the palate: Not sure what flower I’m getting (rose hips? jasmine?) Caramel, vanilla, and cherry ultimately make their expected appearance but it’s more in the mid-palate. Finish brings a lot of cherry (good) but also astringent oak (bad) Mouthfeel is typical bright coppery BT profile so no surprises there. Not a fan of this one as I’m not a big fan of floral profiles. At $39.99 the price was certainly right, but overall outside of the occasional honey bottle Eagle Rare continues to disappoint. Don’t ever pay more than $40 for this. Thank me later.
39.99 USD per Bottle
