Elijah Craig Barrel Batch proof C919 Straight Bourbon Whiskey Tasting Notes

Nose: Aromas of a great Thanksgiving spread – sweet potatoes, sage, stewed fruit, and pepper! And very nuanced for the proof as well.

Palate: The palate is coating from front to back with pepper, caramel and char. With a little water, more melon and vanilla notes emerge.

Palate: My first pass, poured neat, woke me up with its surprising heat. The high proof point of this bourbon lends itself to a bit more heat, so buyer beware. In its rawest form, this whiskey delivers sharp heat with a citrus and maple infused flavor spectrum. It is similar to drinking a chili infused crème brulé topping. There were also the distinctive flavors pulled from the oak as well as the softer, subtle whisper of roasted stone fruits such as cherry and even a bit of prune.

Vital Statistics: The proof level of the batches of Elijah Craig 12 Barrel Proof bottlings vary. I sampled batch C919, released in September of 2019. Aged for 12 years, this batch clocked in at 136.8 proof. It ranges from around $60-$90 in price.

Finish: Long finish.

    As usual I was hesitant in dealing with an online company that I had not dealt with before. I took a chance it it paid off. Ordering was easy, they kept me informed about my order and where it was in the picking, packing, and shipping process. What I ordered came even sooner than expected and was packaged extremely well. It’s been a pleasure doing business with champions liquor shop and they’re on my list of go to companies for specialized spirits.
