Nose: Full-on, rich sweet nose: candy, caramelised oak.
Palate: Big, chewy and sweet with a fresh oily zap on the back palate stopping it from becoming too cloying.
Finish: Long, slightly hot.
Comment: Big and sweet. Scale down the sweet vermouth when making your Manhattan.
Nose: Soft, clean.
Palate: Lightly toffeeish. Sweet. Orangey. Some minty rye notes.
Finish: Gentle. Slight citrus zest.
Comment: More delicate and restrained than I expect from Eagle Rare...distinctly the sweeter of the Bourbons in this tasting.
