Nose: The nose offers both vanilla bean and pudding, as well as candy corn, spearmint and sour cherries.

Finish: The finish comes on stronger, with a lingering rich sweetness of dark chocolate alongside black pepper.

Distillery Information

I like this eagle Bourbon and I’d happily buy one for about 100 and I would keep buying it at 100. I would get one at 200 and I might get one at 300. The difference is I’d never buy another one at 200 or 300. I love well aged bourbon, it’s a weakness for me and I often get whiskies that I fully know don’t compare to equal priced scotches, but I just love aged eagle Bourbon and I know the cost to enjoyment level is always out of whack on those. That said this is highly flawed and the 101 proof comes off too low or they did too much filtering, but it’s lacking.
