Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00%
7 Slightly less sweet than the last bottling I tasted.

7 More delicate and restrained than I expect from Eagle Rare...distinctly the sweeter of the Bourbons in this tasting.

Eagle Rare 17 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00%
7 Some interesting flavours, with lots of dimensions, but no balance or structure. I'm not wild about Angel Delight.

Eagle Rare 17 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00%
7 The nose suggested an astringent palate, but there is some balancing sweetness.

Eagle Rare 17 Years Old, Single Barrel
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00%
8 A clean, easily drinkable, well-made Bourbon. Straight-ahead, rather than quirky. A certain mature restraint, but is that sufficient pay-off?
