"Elijah Craig continues to deliver with their 12 year Barrel Proof release. Batch A119 is dark and richly aromatic with deep aromas of figs and leather. It explodes on the palate with cherrywood, vanilla, hyssop, and chestnut. Despite its high proof, it offers a sweet palate up front and that gives way to baking spice on the long finish. For those who enjoy a big, high-proof bourbon, this one is an easy decision to buy."
