"Elijah Craig's Barrel Proof batches have showcased the variety and complexity of flavors Heaven Hill has created within their warehouses. A120 shows a nice mix of peach, heavily roasted hazelnut, and rustic bread on the nose. On the palate, the alcohol is present in the pronounces chili spice, but gives way to a creamy caramel and stewed apricot flavor. Water is recommended and helps to open up a nice viscosity in the whiskey. "
