Elijah Craig Barrel Proof. Image courtesy Heaven Hill Distillery.This is 2018’s third and final batch of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof, and the nose is oaky, aromatic, and spicy with touches of allspice and pepper balanced by hints of honey, caramel candy, and dark chocolate fudge. The taste is spicy and intense with black pepper, chili powder, and cinnamon spices on top of honey, vanilla, caramel, and a hint of dark chocolate. The spices fade slowly to a mouth-watering juicy finish with sweet notes of honey, caramel, and a hint of apple pie. Excellent! (September, 2018)
