Something I'd appreciate your help with, friends:While chatting about whisky during an online tasting I mentioned that Elijah Craig was one of the bourbons I don't like as much as others. I was told to try the Barrel Proof, especially the batch 68,5% alc. and expect something special...Does anybody know this variant of the Elijah Craig and can tell me something about it? Even better would be a sample to try and taste the stuff myself This seems to be an older batch as the one in the shops in the moment has a different percentage of alcohol.So, anybody able to help?
I've had this at a tasting of bourbons. It's just cask stregrh Elijah Craig. Nothing super special. I presume as it's cask strength it'll float about a bit. Probably between 64%-68% depending upon batch. It retails for almost double the regular stuff. I think it's $65 here. Springbank 10 pricing . As to whether you will like it I don't know. Think super intense bourbon vanillas caramel and spice. If that's your thing you will otherwise I would avoid it. It's also quite nippy would be better at 18 but than it would be a significant pricier bottle as all "older" bourbons are.
Thanks!This is just what I thought - as it's the same age as the regular EC 12 it shouldn't be too different.I'll look around to see if I can grab a sample somewhere.
