Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Batch C918 750 ML
- Nose: A combination of flavors right up front that resemble Vanilla Dr. Pepper; tobacco, brown sugar, and fruit leather follow.
- Palate: The fruit leather leads into sweet tobacco cream, cinnamon spice, with grape soda and oak coming mid-palate. This has a noticeably oily mouthfeel. With the strong oak notes, it does not become dry as some older bourbons often do.
- Finish: Tobacco and brown sugar and caramel linger for quite a while, transitioning to purple grapes and vanilla extract. With the exception of the vanilla, no additional flavors are introduced, but the long decrescendo from the palate is still quite good.
About This Item
Uncut, straight from the barrel without chill filtering, the nose, taste, and finish created by twelve years of aging are preserved in their simplest form. At full barrel proof, you can enjoy Elijah Craig much the same way our Master Distillers do when they sample straight from the barrel in our Kentucky rickhouses. It's a bold and honest expression of what charred oak barrel aging can do for Bourbon, from the man who originated the process.
