I recall when Eagle Rare was $19 for a bottle. It was easily the best bourbon for the buck then. Good pour still, but funny how it's increased in price despite being the same product.I just want to try it once.
It's funny this thread got bumped because I was craving Bourbon this week, but haven't been home much in order to sit down with a glass. I was on a beer kick for a while, but winter beers are not my favorite. I think I might run out for lunch and see if Rouses still has a bottle of Eagle Rare... but I can't remember which store I saw it at.
I just built a private club here that we get cost plus 10% for original members which kept it from being full retail, but it was asinine. I figured 150. It was 3+ times that, but it is good. Worth it - no. Nothing is, but it's as good as the Stagg I have or the Pappys. It's different, but quite good. For my money Col Taylor is fine.agreed. had the 21 and 23 - and while really good ( almost evaporates in mouth ) the 15 has, for me, a good honey note.
so funny....i have a client that was in my office just yesterday.
Just returned from Vegas as his good friend owns a distribution company, paid $50k to be at this Cigar/Whiskey convention. ( he went to help set up/take down - whole trip paid for ) HE said he spent 4 days sipping some of the best whiskey, smoking some of the best cigars ( Came in 2nd in the rolling contest lol )
so he said i needed to get a bottle of......Whistle Pig Samauri.
i hadnt even looked it up til i read your post.
DAYUUM...is it worth it?
I still see it for $20 occasionally. Same thing happened with Four Roses Small Batch. Used to be in the low $20s and now its at $30I recall when Eagle Rare was $19 for a bottle.

It has been my go to for 3 years now. In the last 6 mo or so, ive weened off Basil on to Angels Envy and an Elijah Craig Small Batch for weekend sipping. I was hooked on how smooth and palatable Basil is. Its not overbearing- quite subtle overall.I tried Basil Hayden recently and its pretty good. I think it was mentioned on one of the other Whiskey threads in the past.
you try the Angels Envy Rye finished in rum casks? Heaven in a bottleIt has been my go to for 3 years now.

But dang if i dont mention that 3 years ago, a bottle of Basil was $27.99-$31.99. Now, i cant find under $40.
Shoot, im staring at a 1/3 bottle in my office as i type this ( not that i drink on the job or anything- for special post work occassions mmmkaay )
