I’m not willing to buy into internal or external hype, but I am willing to give this a fair hearing. As always, the proof is in the bottle. Let’s ignore the nationalist tropes and assess the whiskey, shall we? Special Delivery Requests?

A combination of factors. First, it is an allocated spirit, meaning Eagle Rare will never reach equilibrium. It's also a premium bourbon produced by Buffalo Trace Distillery, which, even if the whiskey inside the bottle were average, adds a layer of shine for bourbon drinkers. Above all, though, Eagle Rare is an exceptional whiskey and fills out the scorecard like few others can: it's affordable, well-aged, low-proof and award-winning. Its low-rye mash keeps the whiskey on the softer side, and the drinkable 90 bottling proof and 10 years spent in a barrel make it a crowd-pleaser. How much does Eagle Rare cost?

John, I have the same whiskeys- ones that people go gaga over that leave me totally cold. As you note, there’s as many tastes and preferences as there are folks in the world.James "Jim" Beam and Joe Beam were the grandsons of Jacob Beam. Jim in particular continued his grandfather's legacy and founded James Beam Bourbon. Meanwhile, Charles Beam was born to Roy Beam, Joe's son. So, Charles Beam is both great-great-grandson of Jacob Beam and the grand-nephew of Jim Beam himself.
