    This dram is flawed somewhat, but I like it all the same. Still, it doesn't measure up to the other Eagle Rare that I opened before this one. This one is much hotter and the fire gets in the way of the glory, like a backdraft in a house fire as firemen rush in to save the day, only to perish in flames. God rest the souls of my tastebuds. Unfortunately, water doesn't help in this case, but rather harms what could have been an even better dram. If I didn't know better, I would guess that Buff Trace mixed up 17 with 13. Yes this drinks like a 13 year-old, or even a 12 year-old.
