  • Excerpt: It’s complex, multi-faceted and carries a strong sense of depth. Water also worked magic on this one and opens it up, evening it out and rounding any rough edges. It’s a lovely whiskey and the perfect end-of-summer sipper with a chunk of ice slowly melting with each sip.

  • Intro:

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

  • Nose:

    Jet fuel. Cherry. Root beer and cola. Oak and molasses with some very very mild char.

  • Taste:

    Powerful. The proof is huge and so is the mouthfeel. Its rich and again, seems very much like syrup. Hot though and before the prickly heat kicks in there is a lot of cherry, molasses, cinnamon and a good deal more cola than the other previous batches.

  • Finish:

    Goes for miles. Its large and powerful and Ill admit, this one was a bit tough to get through. Inhaling at the wrong moment is punishing but cut with a drop or two of water, this bottle sings.

  • Overall:

    Ive never seen such bold and massive flavor and this is becoming a very quick contender against the GTS crown. Wear a hazmat suit though, and maybe dont let this touch exposed skin.

  • Score:

    8
