Eagle Rare uses the #1 Mashbill from Buffalo Trace, which is thought to be a low rye mash bill consisting of 10% or less rye. Eagle Rare recently went through a label design change which moved the 10 year age statement from the bottleneck to the back of the bottle and also removed the "Single Barrel" statement as were filled on an automated bottling line so barrels could possibly be mixed. This bottle was hand filled.
This is one of the great bourbon bargains out there, tasting way more expensive than it is. Its complexity starts with fruit flavors of dark cherries, red apples and bananas. Then the spices of cinnamon, clove and allspice kick in. These are rounded by honey, caramel, milk chocolate, vanilla and toasty oak. A rugged leather note rides it off into the sunset.
