The bottle may say 17 years old, but the whiskey inside is actually closer to 19 years old in this release. The nose is very smooth and full of oak, caramel, brown sugar, and a hint of nutmeg. The taste starts with a smooth, slow buildup of cinnamon to a nice, lingering peak, while still showing caramel and brown sugar sweetness underneath. The finish is very long, smooth, and slightly spicy. This may be the best of the Eagle Rare 17’s so far!
