Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Batch C923
Reminder: We can only ship spirits within California at this time. Limit one bottle per customer.
To sip Barrel Proof is to experience Bourbon in its purest form: uncut, straight from the barrel, and without chill filtering. Each bottle is hand labeled with its unique proof and batch number; but the nose, taste, and finish are pure Elijah Craig.
Bold caramel, cocoa, cherry cola, root beer, peanut brittle, rich oak and tons of sweetness. Rich and layered, plenty of oak in the best way. Whew.
Rich on the palate, viscous and powerful. Lots of cocoa, honey, toffee, red berries, cherry cola and a dash of caramel character. Impressive and varied, complex and layered. Tons going on. The proof, while the highest in a while, isn't punchy or aggressive.
Long finish that's heavy on sweet dessert, with toffee, caramel, cherry cola, a dash of root beer and heavy nutmeg, turtle candies and sweet oak.
Lovely and rich, powerful and layered, possibly the best Elijah Craig Barrel Proof ever. Unreal, full of life and character, a testament to the naysayers that Heaven Hill has at least one trick up their sleeves: this release. More to come? We can only hope.
