Nose: cherry, wood, toffy, pie crust, vanilla icecream. Taste: hot oak, baking spices, caramel, Experience: eating hot cherry pie and ice cream on a summer night. Tasty but maybe you took a bite too soon, if you aren't careful while enjoying this treat you could burn yourself. I'm not a huge fan of the regular Elijah Craig, but damn this is a treat. A fantastic bourbon. Just be ready for the heat.
