    This is the second batch released in 2023 for Elijah Craig's Barrel Proof Bourbon series which features its flagship bourbon recipe uncut and unfiltered. Importantly, this release departs from a consistent 12 Year age statement. Going forward in an effort to maintain the quality of the product, the age will vary for each batch. Furthermore, the age statement will feature on the front label rather than the side label like previous editions. Each batch will be selected by the master tasting team which includes Master Distiller Conor O'Driscoll. B523 is aged for 11 years and 5 months and is bottled at 124.2 proof (62.1% ABV). Available beginning May 2023. (SRP $69.99)

    Heaven Hill offers up single barrels both in a 94 proof and at barrel proof to restaurants, bars, retailers and other such groups to purchase the entire barrel. This is the barrel proof offering which is bottled straight from the cask, without chill filtration or water added. The bottle will display barrel details and the name of the group which bought the barrel. The age of these releases will be in the 8-11 year range and will also be featured on the label. As is the nature of such bottlings, expect flavor variations to exist among the barrels.
