Default Buffalo Trace or Eagle Rare

Want to buy a bourbon for when my Dad comes over. I've narrowed it down to either Buffalo Trace or Eagle Rare. I'm a Scotch guy, wanna know which one the CA members would pick and why! Thanks!

You can't go wrong with either one, really. I'd probably give the edge to the Eagle solely because to me it seems to have a slightly smoother finish.

I like Buffalo Trace. Why? Because I like it. You can't go wrong with either one. Flip a coin and enjoy.

As others have said, you cannot go wrong with either. They are both classics in their own right. They are both 45% or 90 proof, so there is no edge there. I really like them both, however, I'd have to give Eagle Rare, the edge, as far as smoothness goes!

All 3 hit it on the head...

I would do the Eagle too. Simply for the reason stated, smoothness.

Eagle Rare IS Buffalo Trace. Just a part of their limited collection, not as limited as Stagg, of course, but part of that same family. Its a step up from the "regular" Buffalo Trace bottling and has more age on it providing for smoother palate.

Assuming you are talking about the 10 year old Eagle bottling, the 17 year is a big step up and is very rare.
