2024’s first release of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof is 10 years and 9 months old, and the nose has touches of caramel, leather, tobacco, honey, and dry spices. The taste is thick, chewy, and spicy with black pepper and clove notes balanced by caramel, leather, tobacco, and honey. The finish is long and spicy with a touch of oak. (January, 2024)
