Bourbon Review: Eagle Rare 10 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Happy 4th of July America! To celebrate this American holiday I decided to do a bourbon tasting and review of Eagle Rare 10 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. I do not claim to be an expert on bourbon I just know what I like and what I don’t Like. The bottle itself is sleek and patriotic with a swooping bald eagle etched on the glass. This bourbon is a great value for the bourbon drinker on a budget for under $30 . According to their website, “Eagle Rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is masterfully crafted and carefully aged for no less than ten years. The rareness of this great breed of bourbon is evident in its complex aroma, as well as the smooth and lingering taste. Eagle Rare is a bourbon that lives up to its name with its lofty, distinctive taste experience.” I tasted Eagle Rare neat and enjoyed the oaky aroma and sweet oaky flavor. The finish was dry but overall I would recommend this Bourbon to anyone as a casual sipper either neat or on the rocks. Eagle Rare is distilled, aged, and bottled by Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. Cheers!
