Eagle Rare 17 Year 2017 is a well-aged bourbon that was crafted by Master Distiller Charles L. Beam in 1975. It is still produced at the award-winning Buffalo Trace Distillery. This bourbon was crafted from Mash Bill #1, like other great blends such as E. H. Taylor, Buffalo Trace, and George T. Stagg. It is a sour mash of corn, rye, and malted barley, which has a lower content of rye, than mash bill #2. This exquisite bourbon is smooth and rich with dominant notes of almonds, and cinnamon, mingled with hints of cigars box on the nose. The palate has strong notes of leather, layered with the sweetness of vanilla and faint hints of tobacco. This finish is long and warm with profound notes of leather and toffee. 

Eagle Rare 17 Year 2017 is a masterpiece that was first crafted at Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfurt, Kentucky in 1975. During this time whisky sales were at an all-time low so Master distiller Charles Beam took the opportunity to put out more aged and pricier products. Initially, it was bottled at 101 proof as a means of reintroducing bourbon as a luxury spirit and as an homage and direct competitor to Wild Turkey. In 1989 The Sazerac Company purchased several brands including Eagle Rare and in 1992 they acquired Buffalo Trace Distillery. In 2005 the brand discontinued the 101 version in favor of the 90-proof version we know today. In 2012, after the brand had a series of updates to the facility they removed the ten-year aged statement from the name, and the single barrel proof signifier was removed from the bottle entirely. The new bottling system allowed them to become more efficient and blend the unique flavors of individual barrels into one bottle. Eagle Rare whiskey is carefully aged for no less than ten years making it a smooth and tasty whiskey. Eagle rare has been a proud recipient of so many awards throughout the years, that they are proud to present The Eagle Rare life program which was started in 2011, the program has been successful for over Ten years. It consists of a program where community members are nominated every year with touching stories of their work in the community. After the winner is chosen they are proudly recognized and receive the coveted "Reach higher Eagle Rare Life Award" and the charity of their choice receives a $50,000 donation.
