Early Kentucky settlers created Bourbon, the true American spirit, in the late 1700s. By practice, and protected by law, no other distilled spirit adheres to standards as strict as those established for Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. And few other whiskeys can offer even a glimpse of the great whiskey making found in Eagle Rare. Eagle Rare symbolizes the spirit of innovation – tapping the human intellect to find new ways to achieve greatness. The celebration of the human will is what compels us to realize that anything is possible if we believe in ourselves.
Brilliant amber color. Rich polished aromas of coconut crème brulee, buttery nuts, dried apples and pears, and elegant brown spices follow through round, vibrant entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with layers of chocolate, figs, and nuts. Finishes with a very long, peppery spice, grain, honeyed tea, and mineral driven fade. A vigorous and flavorful bourbon that demands attention.
