  • Intro:

    The second entry in Elijah Craig's newest portfolio series: Elijah Craig Barrel Proof is a 12yr expression comprised of barrels dumped and blended at barrel proof.

  • Nose:

    Bold brown sugar, tobacco, light fruit notes and rich clove. Sweet, but plenty of oak on the nose.

  • Taste:

    Honey, toffee, brown butter. Lovely dessert notes throughout. Pleasant oak structure, toffee, a bit of pepper. Light cola, a hint of cherry.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. Bold, powerful, complex. Lots to dig through in terms of complexity, but the oak is poised nicely.

  • Overall:

    Markedly improved over the first batch, Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Batch 2 is loaded with rich flavor and plenty of notes to keep bourbon drinkers engaged.

  • Score:

    6
