    Which do you prefer?

    ETL and Eagle Rare 10 year are described similarly. How would you compare them? Which do you prefer?

    Re: Which do you prefer?

    I enjoy both.

    The spicy flavor of ETL often invites another glass.

    The sweet, cognac-like flavor of Eagle Rare 10 y/o is more like dessert. One is usually enough.

    Both are very, very good. I picked ETL because it's a better value and has never disappointed me.

    Re: Which do you prefer?

    I enjoy both but I voted for the Eagle Rare because it stands out from my usuals more that the ETL, although I probably drink more of the ETL lately.

    For me, ETL is a hands down winner. I am not sure what it is, but ER SB 101 is to alcoholy (?) for me.

    Very tough call, but ETL got my vote. Good comparison, I like both a lot. And both stay stocked but the slight, slight edge goes to ETL....

    Is that a typo? The ER SB isn't 101 proof, but 90.

    I have to vote ETL. I have only had one bottle of the ER SB but maybe twenty or more bottles of ETL. I would have had more ER SB but for the fact that it is about ten bucks more. Also, I much prefered the old ER 101 to the one bottle of ER SB that I have had and I still have a fair amount of that stashed. Not as much as I would like, but a fair amount.

    I enjoyed ETL much more on an initial comparison with the ER and sent the ER off with a friend who liked it better.

    Thanks for pointing out my gross error. It is the 90 proof I meant.
