This is the Fall 2012 Release of Buffalo Traces coveted Antique Collection member: Eagle Rare 17yr.
Fruity sawdust, oaky, cocoa, caramel, rich pepper. Really quite fruity.
Medium mouth feel, no heat, cocoa, oaky sawdust, fruity. Its actually super fruity, loaded with raspberry, melon, passion fruit, vanilla and caramel. Its everything I like about an off the shelf Eagle Rare 10yr Pick, but amplified a bit. The oak really helps to balance what could easily be runaway sweetness, as well.
Oaky, peppery, nice oak and sawdust notes. It is definitely mash bill 1 but balances really well with the soft oak character.
Damn good, if a hair underproofed. If this was cask strength, I bet it would be awesome, but we can all surmise why it is not. That said, it's not over oaked and delivers a floral, fruity, faintly oaky profile with great proficiency and zero bitterness.
