  • Intro:

    This is a moderately elusive release from Elijah Craig, which is Heaven Hill distillate bottled at cask strength.

  • Nose:

    Oaky and sweet, fudgy and loaded with icing.

  • Taste:

    Proof is starting to crank back up and this one is hot. Its not too hot and doesnt begin to approach the heat of the Haz but it is noticeable. The oak here is very pronounced and Im getting quite a bit less cherry.

  • Finish:

    Long and much less rough than the palate. The proof settles down and the vanilla really shines here. I was worried this was going to be too oaky but my fears have rested.

  • Overall:

    Not my favorite of the batches but honestly, there hasn't been a bad one yet. Anyone offering me a dram of this would not be dismissed.

  • Score:

    7
