  1. Elijah Craig Toasted Barrel Bourbon

    Nose: Light with barrel notes. Touch of sweetness. Pallet: The additional barrel finish helps to smooth out the flavor with adding toasted notes. There is a touch of sourness. Finish: Dry and oak-ey warmness. The overall pour was very enjoyable, the $20+ increase in price in a more competitive class that it could compete but won’t win. EC is one of my daily drinkers and this is a fine twist on a old staple.

    Barrel 567, 3.5 yrs, 129.5 proof Nose: Lighter than the 190 and more pleasant. Full mixture of spice. Pallet: Very earthy and dry (tannic) on the tongue along with what I’m told is flavors of the malted grain. Finish: Dry with more of the malted grain. After 2 more tastings I find the earthy was stays consistent.

    Barrel 190, 6.5 yrs, 137.6 proof. Nose: No alcohol but heavy spice Pallet: Lots of flavor on a full pallet, with All Spice and caramel undertones. Finish: Long caramel finish with a high proof burn (but manageable) After two other tastings I find the caramel is more on the spicy cinnamon side with fruit notes on the finish.
