Review #49 - Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Batch #11
Nose: Cinnamon, toffee, vanilla, oak, brown sugar, cherry, toasted nuts
Palate: Vanilla, hot cherries, big oak, brown sugar, baking spice, leather.
Finish: Long. Rounded wood, baking spices, caramel. The heat lingers, in a good way.
Verdict: This is just plain delicious. Comes together nicely, all the bourbon flavors cavorting together in a spritely jig. A good Elijah Craig Barrel Proof is always something I enjoy, and this is one of the good ones.
Would I buy this: Absolutely. I still feel ECBP is one of the better values in Bourbon, and this one is quite good.
Would I order this in a bar: Yes. Absolutely.
Would I drink this if someone gave me a glass: For certain!
