Whisky Reviews for Elijah Craig Barrel Proof - Release #7

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.75 points

  1. mds51 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Significantly more complex than the standard 12y. Here you can see what the alcohol level can be.
    • Nose
      First comes only a barrage of alcohol. Then, when the nose gets used to it, vanilla, sweetness and oak notes. In the background some marzipan, some orange and nougat. The whole thing is accompanied by some menthol.
    • Taste
      The alcohol is clearly noticeable. Light sweetness and orange first, followed by a pleasant spice. Very oily, coffee notes, maple sirp (but not so sweet), white pepper. A hint of dark currants.
    • Finish
      The spice stays for a long time and forms bitter chocolate notes.

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Great for 57 €. Although I would like the 18er for ~ 60 € again, but this compensated almost ... ;-)
    • Nose
      Wow, he jumps in the nose - strong, dry, dusty oak notes, mint fresh!
      Then (drops of water) black berries, cocoa, spicy sharpness, Brazil nut.
    • Taste
      (more water, because pretty heavy)
      Cocoa, intense, fat, oily! Dark bittersweet (molasses, maple syrup, sugar beet syrup), neat pepper, tobacco, old leather
    • Finish
      Laaang ... cocoa and pepper
