Eagle Rare 17 Year Old 2014 Release. Image courtesy Buffalo Trace. This annual release from the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection is actually around 19 years old, and the nose is smooth with subtle spices, leather, pipe tobacco, and a nice oakiness. The taste starts off sweet with honey and caramel notes, then the spices kick in with cinnamon and black pepper, along with hints of oak and leather in the background. The finish is short, dry, and subtle. (September, 2014)
