I've been enjoying some Eagle Rare 10 year. At 90 proof, it's not enough to warrant some ice and I've been enjoying it neat. It smells sweet with hints of cinnamon, leather, and a wee bit of cardamom. The first sip of the night is a bit hot, but it drops off and there's a lingering warmth in subsequent sips.

The flavors have been harder to pin down. It's been different on different night. Sometimes caramel. Sometimes leather. Some food may go well with this.

Adding in snacking on sharp cheddar and Triscuits doesn't affect the tasting much.

I've got more, so I'll have to revisit this. Maybe with some chocolate or something sweet.

Uffda! -ath0
