Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Batch B519 (122.2 proof)
Visual: Dark brown.
Nose: Vanilla, caramel and barrel along with some tree fruit essences.
Taste: There’s a curious tartness here which is not out of place, but creates a more mouth-watering entrance. Plenty of spice here as well.
Finish: Long and spicy.
Overall: A lower proof release than its predecessors have been and this plays to its strengths. Another excellent entry in the Barrel Proof portfolio.
GSN Rating: A
