Elijah Craig Barrel Proof. Image courtesy Heaven Hill Distillery.This batch is Heaven Hill’s first 2019 release of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof, and the nose has notes of chili pepper-infused chocolate, charred oak, brown sugar, molasses, and a hint of vanilla. The taste is intensely spicy with chili powder and black pepper balanced by molasses, honey, vanilla, and chocolate notes. The finish is long, while the spices fade away very slowly. (February, 2019)
