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.
Very interesting but atypical port barrel finished bourbon.
Breaking & Entering Bourbon is a Juvenile Delinquent, with lots of promising showing but a bit of a lightweight
Damn fine and manly soap made with real Buffalo Trace Bourbon
While it gets a decent score for taste, the value is not there for the money ( for those of you who care, and not just collect for the sake of showing off to the equally shallow or reselling profiteers)
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.
Drier and woodier than previous vintages, giving you a rich oakiness similar to a much older bourbon without the cost.
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 variation from the Jim Beam Family but a bit overshadowed by the wood and lacking some finesse and balance overall.
Interesting whiskey with malty chocolate overtones to it.
A failed experiment in my opinion
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!
