Eagle Rare Bourbon Whiskey 17 year old Single Barrel 45%

From the Buffalo Trace  Distillery Kentucky

Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey, Single barrel bottling
(90 Proof, "Rye Recipe" Kentucky Straight Bourbon)
Tasting Notes:-

Wine Enthusiast rating: 96
This deep, burnished-gold whiskey has a somewhat fragrant nose, and the aromas develop an almost wine-like character, with a hint of almonds lurking in the backdrop.
The body is big and silky, and the palate is far spicier than the nose leads you to believe, but there are also violet notes here, along with a touch of caramel and a hint of old leather.
The finish is very leathery, and very long.
This whiskey earned a great rating, but lovers of previous bottlings of Eagle Rare should know that this seems to bear a completely different style---it’s far greater than either the 10-or 15-year old.
