  • Excerpt: There’s a lot going on here and plenty of enjoyable elements in it, but ultimately I feel like the barrel has been a little too rough with this one, that perhaps it hit its peak a few years back.

  • Intro:

    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.

  • Nose:

    Rich and powerful. Oh man. Rich brownie - fudge, cream, cocoa combined with powerful oak, toffee and some vanilla bean. Hint of char.

  • Taste:

    Thick and viscous, loaded with plenty of toffee, honey, waffle cone. Oak structure is well developed, not too tannic. Powerful and satisfying.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. Buttery toffee, cream, cocoa and a hint of cherry. Werthers caramels. Oak is spot on.

  • Overall:

    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.
