Elijah Craig Barrel Proof 122.2 Batch B-519

This particular batch is noteworthy as it clocks in at a lower proof than ever before for the brand. This makes it inherently easier to drink, as the brand often lands on the hot side of 130 proof. Instead of having to water down a previous batch to match this release, this is batched uncut at 122.2 proof. Theoretically, this makes its flavor profile taste rather potent despite being lower in proof than previous releases as the lower proof should allow more flavor to show through. For that reason, this particular batch might get more attention than normal. 

The nose features very traditional bourbon aromas at first whiff. Steadfast scents of vanilla, caramel, and oak flow out of the glass and signal its high proof. Additional notes of apple, apricot, and faint orange rind help add some complexity. On the palate, it’s surprisingly citrusy at first sip, with lemon and lime greeting your tongue before creamy caramel, toffee, and dark fruits take over. The finish is heavy on oak, which translates into a long, dry, and mildly bitter aftertaste. Some sweetness is present, before spice rolls in.
