Eagle Rare Single Barrel Reviews
Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Nose: Toffee, raisins and marzipan. Caramelised brown sugar follows, along with fruity bread pudding. Under the layers of sweetness are touches of spice and fresh fruit: toffee apples and overripe pears.
Palate: Creamy in texture with bittersweet burnt sugar up front. Apple sauce and raisin sweetness follows, with cinnamon sugar and malt loaf richness. Some apple-skin sharpness floats around the edges along with balancing barrel-char bitterness. A hint of Ribena blackcurrant builds through the middle.
Finish: Hints of mint and menthol fade. Sugar sandwiches appear: brown bread, butter, golden Demerara.
Comment: Well balanced and easy drinking, with spice, fruit and classic bourbon sweetness all coming together perfectly.
