Nose: Sweet vanilla, oak, passion fruit, caramel and toffee. Nice tobacco presence.

Taste: Medium mouth feel, no heat. Vanilla, tobacco, oak and pleasant cocoa influence. Lacking a lot of the fruitiness I get in some Eagle Rare 10 iterations, but making up for it in rich dessert richness without overbearing, bitter oak.

Finish: Medium length, faint oak, cocoa and tobacco. Vanilla icing and some mild orange peel are present also. Really interesting.

Overall: Definitely a unique profile for most Eagle Rare 10, this was delicious and interesting all at once. I found myself going to this bottle over and over and over because of how unique it was, and to my dismay, I came to the bottom far faster than I was expecting to.

Thanks for reading!
