About Eagle Rare 17 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Produced by Buffalo Trace Distillery as part of the Antique Collection, Eagle Rare 17 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey honors the launch of the Eagle Rare Brand that dates back to 1974. Distilled in the spring of 2002, it was aged for 18 years and 3 months on the first floor of Warehouse P. Bottled at 101 proof, the sour mash bill features Kentucky corn, Minnesota Rye, and North Dakota malted barley. This rare and exceptionally old bourbon delights with a nose of ripe cherries, vanilla cream, and oak, which develop into caramel and coffee flavors on the well-balanced palate, rounded up by oak, pepper, and fresh herbs.
Situated on the Kentucky River in Frankfort, Kentucky, Buffalo Trace Distillery takes its name from an ancient pathway that migrating buffalo used when traveling westward. The trail was well-known among Native Americans and was eventually used by pioneering settlers who crossed the Ohio River and followed the buffalo trace to the Western frontier.
Buffalo Trace Distillery is the oldest continually operating distillery in the United States and includes the rich legacies of master distillers such as E.H. Taylor, Jr, George T. Stagg, Albert B. Blanton, Orville Schupp, and Elmer T. Lee. Today, the distillery is still family-owned, operating on the same 130 acres of land adjacent to the Kentucky River as it has for over 200 years.
