Eagle Rare Single Barrel
70cl / 45%
- Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
A specially-selected single cask release of Eagle Rare, chosen by and exclusively available from The Whisky Exchange. It has the regular Eagle Rare intensity and complexity, but we chose this cask due to its excellent fruity notes that add an extra dimension to the house style. Sweet blackcurrant, stewed apples and raisins on top of brown sugar sweetness and leafy mintiness. An excellent whiskey.
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.

Bought this bottle while visiting London recently. Lovely stuff, very tasty for a 90 proof whiskey.
