  • Intro:

    This is a selection of an Eagle Rare single barrel by Bourbon Street Wine and Spirits. Eagle Rare is typically bottled at 10 years, features the BT #1 Mashbill and sees growing scarcity across the country. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Really bright apple note - not something I get from ER10 usually. Apple pie, graham cracker crust, toffee. Big cocoa note, some nougat, faint oak. Leaning sweet and fruity, rather than dank and savory.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel - heat very much in check, though. Sweet cream, toffee, cocoa, vanilla bean and apple butter. Cinnamon, light nutmeg. Oak structure is dead on, clove grows a little with time.

  • Finish:

    Long, not as complex in the finish, but lots of notes I really like here: creamy vanilla bean, toffee, just the right amount of oak. Caramel and graham cracker crust.

  • Overall:

    This is a great selection by bourbon street. I'd consider it off profile for ER10, which I routinely find to be a detriment, but this is right on the money. That savory, sweet apple pie character is not something I usually get in Eagle Rare, but it's welcome and well integrated on this one.
