"Expectations are high for Elijah Craig Barrel Proof releases, and this batch easily meets them. It's intensely aromatic with inviting notes of toffee. On the palate it balances caramel candy sweetness with its high proof, producing a full-bodied whiskey with ample vanilla, hints of orange peel, and a trace of maple. It's a standout bourbon for a very reasonable price. "
