    If the taster is especially fond of the barrel influence, then that's probably a fair statement and a good recommendation.

    I guess my taste buds are not that advanced. I've had several bottles of the 10 y/o, which I find very pleasant, reminiscent of cognac. The lone bottle of the 17 y/o I've tasted is a bit too woody and dry to my taste. YMMV. (Maybe I'll grow into it over time. Who knows?)

    I have to disagree with this. I have the latest (2006) version of ER17. While it's good, I prefer ER10 (101 or SB) to the ER17 I have, particularly given the price difference.

    Are you sure that's the 2006 ER17? I hadn't heard anything about it arriving at retailers yet. Have I been asleep, and missed it?

    How much is this Eagle Rare 17 year old, and does anyone know where I can get it in southern california? The 10 year old is my favorite bourbon, so I am very keen to try this stuff...

    Joel:
    I have seen Stagg and Saz at Bevmo in Sacramento recently, but I don't recall the ER17. However, I would assume then, that they would attempt to carry all of the Antique Collection, which should include down your way in Southern California. Maybe you could try there?

    BevMo is a good place to start. Try Mission Liquor in Pasadena, the Wine Exchange is Tustin and Hi Times in Newport Beach.
