Whisky Reviews for Elijah Craig Barrel Proof - Release #2

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.80 points

  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I'm not a big bourbon fan, but this is good stuff. I was about to give 87, but I'm subtracting a point due to its hydrophobia.
    • Nose
      Glue, pine tree, eucalyptus, apple, cherry. Eventually some vanilla and pencil shavings. With water quite some paint thinner as well as a little aniseed and iron. Not recommended, keep it straight.
    • Taste
      Apple syrup, pine needles, cherry, caramel. With water some coffee. Also in the taste the profile really suffers from added water, just don't do it.
    • Finish
      Apple, raspberry and pine needles.

    • Taste
      bitter orange, wood smoke, coals, pepper and vanilla

  3. j j scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    grainy in the nose. After that mixture off coffee and fruits. Smooth dram, unlikely considered the abv.

    80p
    don`t get me wrong. this is one of the best bourbons that i have tried.
    but bourbon in general is missing complexity and can`t keep up with single-malts.
    you bourbon-lovers will enjoy this one!
