Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is a single barrel selection from Heaven Hill by a store/society electing to pick something from the Elijah Craig line of bottlings. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet toffee, rich tobacco, lots of graham cracker, vanilla. Faint pepper. All sweet, dough forward.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium mouth feel. Some heat. Apples, pears, vanilla, honey, lots of graham cracker.

  • Finish:

    Short, a bit hot. Pepper, honey, graham cracker, ethanol.

  • Overall:

    The nose is intoxicating, the palate is good, but the finish is a big disappointment. I know the potential is there with these, but I think this falls short.

  • Score:

    4
