Eagle Rare 17 year-old is one of the five bourbons included in the award-winning Buffalo Trace Antique Collection. This rare bourbon is released in small quantities once a year in the fall.
Nose: Dark candied fruit, cigar boxes, cinnamon.
Palate: Delicate and dry. Hints of leather, vanilla and tobacco.
Finish: Lingering, with hint of toffee.
"This deep, burnished-gold whiskey has a somewhat fragrant nose and the aromas develop an almost wine-like character, with a hint of almonds lurking in the backdrop. The body is big and silky and the palate is far spicier than the nose leads you to believe, but there are also violet notes here, along with a touch of caramel and a hint of old leather. The finish is very leathery and very long." -Wine Enthusiast Magazine
