Whisky Reviews for Eagle Rare 17-year-old

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.10 points

  1. molar3rd scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Sweet N’ spicy with some balsamic,Golden Syrup,and a nutty edge to it, as well as quite a bit of sweet pastries / dough.
    Palate: Butterscotch, Wood shavings, Cigar tobacco leaves, leather and dark tea , all engulfed in old wood.
    Finish : Wood, leather and bitter tea.

    Bottom line:

    This is a very nice Bourbon, quite thick, and not to alcoholic at 45% and quite sipable neat. It’s nothing amazing, or mind blowing, yet it’s well integrated, and it ages gracefully. If you like Bourbons, and you are willing to take one step into a more complex and older one, this might be a good starting point.

    • Nose
      Taking, vanilla, solvents, therebentine, pine resin, eucalyptus, menthol. A lot of yeast, bread, toast.
    • Taste
      Creamy, round, powerful. Alcohol is well integrated, moderately long mouth. Set back from the nose.
    • Finish
      Always on vanilla, caramel, pastry.

    Marzipan thoroughly, vanilla to death. Sweet almonds. Star anise. Very sweet. And extremely disgusting after the second sip, which is very damaging (and that's why I only rate 82)

    Had the chance to try this today, fantastic! Went to let the owner of

    this liquor store try the Balvenie tun 1401 #3 and he pulled this out.

    He said it was given him to try from a friend from Scotland. I Liked it

    and haven`t tried any of these before, well done!
