A truly excellent whiskey bottled at the right time for its high points on aging and taste profile rather than waiting for an arbitrary older age to command more money at the price of quality.
Breaking & Entering Bourbon is a Juvenile Delinquent, with lots of promising showing but a bit of a lightweight
Damn fine Bourbon and Favorite of the Elijah Barrel Proof releases so far!
Another Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Release. A bit lighter than some of the others but still good
Another release of a full and robust Barrel Proof Elijah Craig to enjoy and add to your whiskey archive!
Always a good solid bourbon. This batch seems a touch heavier on the nose in a nice way and delivers a full-bodied hearty bourbon at a modest price
Have to say not a fan of this release. I used to think I generally liked the September releases better in any given year, but this one seems to be a bit out of balance to me
Decent release and worth getting if you can find it.
Well done slightly more approachable off the shelf than some of the other releases and a good buy for the money.
Highly recommend this particular release as the pick of the litter for this year! Less oak and char notes and a touch sweeter.
Grab it if you can!
One of the drier expressions of the Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Series
Favorite release of this Elijah Craig Barrel Proof series in a few years!
Much better IMHO than a number of the releases especially lately.
A nice return to an old school bourbon style. This release is much closer to what bourbon used to be and it is nice to see Elijah Craig return to its roots
Interesting , but somewhat , shall we say simpler, (not to use the dirty word-light) expression of an Elijah Craig bourbon. Buy to compare to their other expressions and maybe use to break the newbies in.
One of the cheapest drinkable bourbons around . Usually can be found for $20 or so which is a steal these days for anything in a glass bottle and halfway decent.
While decent, this Vintage 2002 is very light in the taste and finish department. Not one of our favorite vintages.
Much heavier in all departments than former releases. Could almost believe it was a Scotch…
Pay more, get less, but collectible I guess? If you want to collect them all or want to show off a limited availability bottle go ahead, otherwise pass on this one.
A stunning achievement in both whiskey distilling and aging. While Parker Beam did not live to see this whiskey bottled I am sure he would be proud of it.
I’m pretty sure if Parker Beam was still alive he would drink this – it’s that good.
Delicious, complex and smooth everything you might want for a great price.
Decent if not spectacular. More of an investment than a drinking bottle for the low-life bottom feeders that engage in such a trade as it will no doubt be a limited edition and much sought-after bottle. Yes, I think a Heaven Hill aficionado would enjoy it quite a bit and it is worth trying if you can, but maybe not buying an entire bottle as it is pricey for what it is. Leave it to the speculators and shallow egotists and buy some of their more modestly priced releases for enjoyment.
Interesting whiskey with malty chocolate overtones to it.
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!
One of the best buys in bourbon right now. Yes, it is a relatively mass-produced whiskey, but it is a nicely done barrel-proof release of good bourbon to start with and the price/value ratio is a lot higher than a lot of newer craft whiskies that frankly are not as good – especially for the money.
An altogether much drier version than the A120 Release.
Well done release with lots of flavor. If you like the Larceny Barrel Proof series this is one one the better ones recently.
Frankly not as big a fan of this release compared to those in the past.
A nice somewhat incremental improvement over the last batch with a bit more dark fruit flavors than the last batch. Nicely Done !
An excellent batch to kick off the new year! A touch higher proof than the last but very harmonious and some good depth to it.
