Unlike all the others, Eagle Rare 10 year carries a 10-year age statement, although I’ve read rumors that it could be older. I know for a fact that some of the older single barrel picks had 13 year old bourbon in them.
In years past, Eagle Rare was a single barrel bourbon, but that changed when bottling switched from hand to machine-bottled, creating the chance that different barrels might mix. As a result, Buffalo Trace doesn’t put single barrel on the labeling anymore.
I also must mention that like other Buffalo Trace products, Eagle Rare bourbon tends to fly off the shelves, leading to occasionally inflated prices at some stores and/or difficulty finding it. Can the inflated prices be justified? Let’s find out in this Eagle Rare Bourbon review.

Smell

The first sniff of Eagle Rare Bourbon 10 Year reveals a light and delicate mix of sweet mashed corn, caramel, honey, vanilla, citrus, and a dark fruit I can’t quite identify, mixed-in with woody oak and minty rye.
It’s has nice woody, spicy, and fruity qualities with minimal heat, attributed to the “lower” 45% alcohol. Swirling releases more charred wood, nuts, pine, mint, and rye, likely coming from the wood and not so much from the low-rye mash.
The agitated alcohol nicely accentuates the mint like the scent of a freshly opened pack of peppermint gum bursting from the wrapper. It also releases light vanilla frosting, orange and vanilla creamsicle, and the faintest hint of dark fudge and dried oranges. Yeah, Eagle Rare 10 Year bourbon smells good, but not quite amazing.
When the glass is empty, I smell bright mint and musty rackhouse wood. The nose is light but not lacking in character and complexity.

Taste

Moderate wood, spice, and mint immediately hit my tongue, followed by caramel and some alcohol heat. The first taste of Eagle Rare bourbon is not particularly complex, but “chewing” the second time does improve it.
It unveils orange, plum, more caramel, honey, and vanilla sweetness in addition to the existing wood, pine, and mint. Eagle Rare 10 Year definitely gets better with air and “chewing”.
There’s also a lightly nutty taste mixed with stewed corn. The alcohol remains reserved throughout, adding a little body to the otherwise thinner mouthfeel that’s a little rougher and unrefined than expected for a 10 year old bourbon.
Wood tannins initially linger throughout, mixed-in with vanilla, fruit, rye, and caramel. The woodiness transitions into chocolate and then light and tangy orange, all reinforcing that this is 10 year old bourbon.
