  • Intro:

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

  • Nose:

    More cherry and molasses here and more Dr. Pepper. Less oak and vanilla. Bit more ethanol too.

  • Taste:

    This is a good deal hotter. I notice more molasses and cherry here as well and its still delicious. More burn but also a tad more flavor. A hint of dark chocolate and cocoa with a tiny bit of vanilla. Yum.

  • Finish:

    Still long. Still hot. Still massive. Punchy and rich, loads of cherry and cola here.

  • Overall:

    Not slowing down, not decreasing in quality. A little less of what I love compared to #4, but only slightly so and still excellent.

  • Score:

    7
