Elijah Craig Toasted Barrel Bourbon. Image courtesy Heaven Hill Distillery.This Bourbon uses fully-matured Elijah Craig Small Batch, but then finishes it in specially toasted barrels that have been “flash-charred” to allow it to keep the “Straight Bourbon” designation. The nose has notes of toasted bread, honey, brown sugar, dark chocolate, and vanilla. The taste has a good spiciness balanced by soft oak and sweeter notes of honey, vanilla, caramel candy, and dark chocolate. The finish is long and smooth with lingering spices and dark chocolate. Very nice! (August, 2020)
