A damn manly yet gentlemanly bourbon.
Damn fine Bourbon and Favorite of the Elijah Barrel Proof releases so far!
Well done blending for the first expression for 2023! Reccomended.
One of the best Elijah Craig releases I have ever had – and that is saying a lot ! HIGHLY RECCOMEND ! It may not be the best whiskey I have had this year but it is certainly up there and the price to value ratio compared to everything else out there is astounding.
A touch more oily or buttery than the last few releases with pronounced Spanish cedar and oak notes to it.
Not only do you get the extra proof but a lot of subtle aging characteristics and aromas that would have been lost in the proofing down process! Worth the extra money for the extra proof and all the goodness that comes with it!
An altogether much drier version than the A120 Release.
Frankly not as big a fan of this release compared to those in the past.
Recommend you go out and buy this one. Develops some interesting brandy-like characteristics upon slight dilution with water from barrel proof.
