Fourteen readers love this post.
Elijah Craig Barrel Proof 12 Year bourbons are bottled without any dilution or chill filtering. The batch numbers provide specific information about the release: The first letter indicates which of that year’s releases the bottle was a part of starting with “A”, while the second digit is a number that determines the month of the year the bottle was released. The third and fourth digits indicate the year.
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
