Eagle Rare 17 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Spring 2010 Release

Be the first to review this product

The 2010 expression was bottled from 26 barrels that saw a 54.9% loss to evaporation, totaling by our estimate only 4,531 bottles released this year. Despite the label stating “17 Years,” this year’s release was actually aged for 19 years. Buffalo Trace forgos having to re-register a new label each year and instead uses the same one as long as the age increases and not decreases from the stated “17 Years.”
It’s a very bright and welcoming nose that is sweet and floral with notes of cherry, orange peel, and pine. There are decent amounts of oak and char under it all, but never does it seem like too much.
This is where the age of the bourbon really comes into play. It’s heavy on the oak and spice, to the point where it almost overpowers the other flavors. Cinnamon, brown sugar, and leather stick out the most with fainter hints of dark cherry and chocolate underneath.
The spice notes of the palate carry over to the finish. Allspice, nutmeg, and clove flavors develop on the finish while the sweeter elements of the palate completely retreat. The bourbon has a very thin, silky-smooth mouthfeel with little burn.
