  1. Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon Batch A119

    Let it sit and breathe for a few minutes and this bourbon is amazing. Nose is sweet, heavy vanilla, burnt sugar and oak. Rich and creamy mouth feel, intense and spicy. Palate not as sweet as the nose. Spicy oak comes to the front, pepper first, then vanilla and caramel, with cinnamon and a hint of cherry syrup. Finish is long and vibrant. The explosion of flavor lingers on the palate, and this bourbon doesn't let you forget it's high proof. At first taste, I did not think this batch matched batch B518. On second taste, I think it is at least as good, maybe slightly better. Slightly different profile, with a little less sweetness and more spice, but a damn good dram.

    Batch B1/17 Oh yes, this is good. Nose is an explosion of honey, vanilla, butterscotch and cinnamon apples. Mouth feel is luxuriously soft and creamy. Palate is more cinnamon with brown sugar, toffee and spicy oak. Finish is long and warm, with some mouth-numbing pepper and just enough alcohol burn to make sure you remember this baby is cask strength. Dangerously leaves you wanting more.

    Barrel 17-0669 Rickhouse D Floor 6 2 1 Gordon’s private barrel store pick Bottled May 2018 Color is deep amber. Nose is fairly weak but complex, with faint vanilla, caramel, bubble gum and cinnamon apple pie. Velvety mouth feel. Palate is well balanced, with cinnamon and clove with hints of vanilla. Finish also a bit weak, lingering oak with subtle spice but without much character or depth. Some alcohol burn in the mouth, but not much of a hug. I do like this one as a daily sipper, but disappointing for the price and reputation.

    Massive cinnamon and vanilla bomb on the nose. Vanilla continues on the palate with a large dose of charred oak. Cinnamon and baking spices return on the finish, as well as a touch of honey and a soft, minty freshness. Finish is fairly short, but leaves you with a warm hug. This has become my nightly sipper, and there is very little at this price point that competes.

    Earthy, sweetly vegetal, more ethanol and smoke than I anticipated. Would order again at a bar, but not buy a bottle.

    Nose is honey, vanilla, char and alcohol. Palate is cinnamon and vanilla with a hint of smoke and a lot of oak. Alcohol burn up front followed by a long, warm hug. A bit too much emphasis on the alcohol for me keeps it below 4 stars. Looking forward to trying the small batch.

    Nose is slightly sweet and peaty, but not overpowering. Mouthfeel is oily, buttery and warm. Palate starts spicy, with cinnamon and clove, followed by a gentle fruity sweetness, then lingering but muted peat smoke. Giving 4 stars because of the complexity and because I've never tasted a whiskey quite like this, but still trying to figure out if I actually like it.

    Nose is excellent, with a subtle fruity sweetness on the palate, but an unfortunate underlying metallic/copper taste that lingers.

    Batch B518 Honey, vanilla, cinnamon and some oak on the palate. Alcohol burn in the mouth, but not as much as I expected for such high proof, leading to a gentle warmth going down.
