    As I understand, ETL is selected by just picking out the absolute sweetest barrels that they can find. I can not locate the post right now, but I know Elmer has been quoted on the selecion process.

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

    I agree with Dave. Both are excellent pours, but I prefer the more luxuriant mouth feel of ETL to ER. To my tastes, ERSB has a lighter body that is less satisfying than ETL. Having said that, however, I'd gladly raise a glass of ER to toast our differences.

    Elmer T. Lee, as it is one of my top favorites.

    For me Eagle Rare 10yo is the hands down winner. I do quite like ETL though. You really can't go wrong with either drink.

    Re: Which do you prefer?

    I had to go with ETL but I enjoy ER as well. ETL has a multi faceted flavor in my opinion. ER is a good pour but has only two sides, a clean sweet start and a slightly dry medium length finish. There are times when I want something simpler than my usual choices and ERSB fits perfectly.
