  • Intro:

    Elijah Craig Barrel Proof is a 12 year old, cask strength, release from Heaven Hill in Kentucky. Batches were originally denoted by proof alone, but in recent times, since the bottle re-design, batches now get additional designation to help with tracking releases.

  • Nose:

    Oak, honey, cola. Big toffee, rich pepper. Some tobacco. Definitely a big, bold bourbon focusing on more savory, wood driven notes.

  • Taste:

    Thick, rich mouth feel. Definite heat, but not punishing. Toffee, cola, rich oak. Pepper, tobacco, light cherry. Cocoa, light vanilla cream. Super rich.

  • Finish:

    Long, rich, with some heat. Lots of oak here, but not too drying or tannic. Cherries, cola, caramel and tobacco reign supreme here.

  • Overall:

    This was another great batch in what is becoming an incredibly consistent product line. Its oaky and bold without being too dry or tannic and there is a bouquet of other really enjoyable flavors to boot.

  • Score:

    7
