Another entry in Heaven Hill's portfolio, batch C920 of Elijah Craig Barrel proof is was released in September of 2020 and marks the release of another 12yr Barrel Proof bourbon.
Rich and powerful. Oh man. Rich brownie - fudge, cream, cocoa combined with powerful oak, toffee and some vanilla bean. Hint of char.
Thick and viscous, loaded with plenty of toffee, honey, waffle cone. Oak structure is well developed, not too tannic. Powerful and satisfying.
Long finish. Buttery toffee, cream, cocoa and a hint of cherry. Werthers caramels. Oak is spot on.
Swing and an RBI for a game winner here. ECBP C920 nails all the things I love here, and brings just enough oak to keep this towering collection of dessert notes in line. Excellent, to say the least.
