Elijah Craig Single Barrel (No. 4040) 18 year old, 45%

Price: $120 Issue: Spring 2016 Reviewer: John Hansell

Back after a three-year hiatus. Well-rounded, with lovely caramel, creamy vanilla, toasted oak, nougat, and candied fruit, along with a peppering of cinnamon and subtle mint. Pleasant, lingering finish. Great structure with seamless flavors.
