Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Kentucky Straight (Batch C920), 66.4%

Price: $60 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming




Spice and fresh herbs on the nose, yielding to lemon meringue pie, peach tart, whipped cream, and baking spice. Bakery notes of cherry pie and red berries get things going on the palate, followed by sweet notes of vanilla wafer and frosted yellow cupcake atop herbs and spice, all accentuated with water. A long finish of Boston cream pie, coconut ice cream, baking spice, zesty herbs, and cigar ash.
