Bottled in Bond: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bottled_in_bond@GoBison
Delightfully spicy yet somewhat refined. The open is a bit strong and spicy but gives way to a somewhat sweet and cooling woodsy finish. This has a more pronounced sweetness than the eagle but makes me think of that when I sip this. I think I’d buy a bottle of that before this. This seems a bit too ‘flavorful’ for me. I think I prefer a bit less of a sweetness. I feel like I could only have one of these before it left me feeling weighed down.

Key points: same distillery / same distiller, booze has to be at least 4 years old and bottled at 100 proof
Blue sticker - this is a brand new one to me and a fairly new distiller on the market.
This release marks the first batch of distillery-made bourbon from New Riff Distilling. Opened in 2014, the distillery patiently waited for this spirit...
I do prefer Eagle Rare over this as well.
