    BOTM 11/10: Eagle Rare Single Barrel

    Sorry I'm a bit late getting the BOTM posted this month. I've had a lot going on, and kinda spaced it.

    Anyway.................... The bourbon of the month for this month is Eagle Rare Single Barrel 10 year old, 90 proof.

    ERSB is somewhat of a gateway bourbon for me. When I first got interested in bourbon, I had MM, WR, and KC. ERSB was the first bourbon I bought after joining SB. I like this bourbon. It's a shame I don't have a pour of it more often.

    The nose to me has that musty, earthy smell that BT is known for. In the background is a hint of acetone. The taste again, has that earthy quality. Grass/tobacco, leather, and a slight sweetness or fruitiness, that I wish there was a little more of. I know some people might disagree with me, but ERSB for some reason reminds me a little of a wheated bourbon. Oh well.

    Happy posting! Joe


    PS. I would like to thank Silverfish for sending me an alphabetized list of past BOTM's. It makes it a lot easier to see what has and hasn't been BOTM before.
