  • Intro:

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

  • Nose:

    Backing off the proof again a tiny bit. Lots of oak. Lots of vanilla. Lots of maple and some cocoa.

  • Taste:

    This one is hot - reminds me more of the batch 4 than anything but not punishing. Cocoa heavy with a good balance of vanilla and molasses. Cherry is faint and way in the back here. Sad.

  • Finish:

    Long and complex but still not punishing. This one reminds me of a good maple syrup: dark and sweet in one big rush. I think this batch has the least cherry of the ones Ive tasted, which I was really starting to like. The molasses and vanilla and cherry all played very well together. I do however love how strong the molasses and maple are here, so Im not too disappointed.

  • Overall:

    Some more noticeable change here but nothing negative. Full on delicious.

  • Score:

    7
