  • Intro:

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

  • Nose:

    Ethanol and cherries. Honey and molasses and a weird Dr. Pepper / Cola note. Ive always wondered whether people truly got this note in whiskey but bam, here it is. Cherries are huge.

  • Taste:

    Thick like Mrs. Butterworths goods. Oaky and vanilla heavy, its hot but that was expected. Molasses and more cherries, more cola and a big whallop of maple.

  • Finish:

    Long, and hot. Lots of rich flavor though. Every note from nose to palate is here and its just overpowering. In a good way.

  • Overall:

    I'd hate to become wordy. We have people for that. Its excellent, it's big, bold and pulls no punches. Hot, delicious and rich.
