Summary:
Neat 
This is the best bourbon tasted on Malt Mileage for 2013. The Eagle rare (Fall, 2011) is a big bold bourbon offering surges of oak with flecks of spicy rye that are suddenly calmed by sweet corn and sugary notes (honey, raisins etc) and as the spice morphs to ginger bread the palate suddenly dries into an oak driven finish of herbs, honey, cocoa and brown sugar. This is an oak driven bourbon, which, even after 17 years of maturation, has retained the character of the corn and rye used in the Eagle Rare mash. 
Price:
$300 (Aus), $70 (US)
