The third 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.
Bold and powerful, full of clove, graham cracker, honey and cocoa. Rich caramel and toffee.
Rich mouth feel. A bit of heat, but understandable given the proof. Rich oak, honey, toffee. Cocoa, a hint of cola. Cream and pepper keep things balanced. Nice cherry note on the back palate.
Long finish - a warm Kentucky hug - with an abundance of flavor on the finish. Powerful cocoa, honey, toffee. Slivered almond, light cola note, some fruit/cherry and a long, desserty finish.
Impressive and delightful, Elijah Craig Barrel Proof is a shelf staple for any discerning bourbon drinker.
