Elijah Craig Small Batch – Barrel Proof – B519
This is the Elijah Craig Small Batch Barrel Proof B519 at 61.1%
Are you ready for this? Amazing Whiskey in its simplest form. When you take a sip, you’re experiencing this Whiskey exactly how the Master Distillers at Elijah Craig do when they sample each barrel back in the rickhouses in Kentucky.
It’s a big whiskey, completely unfettered and without chill filtration. It’s uncut and straight from the barrel in which it’s aged for a highly respectable 12 years. This B519 iteration is from the second release of the year (B), in June (5), of 2019 (19). Easy, huh! It also has some of the best write-ups in recent years coming in at a slightly lower proof than recent releases but still a respectable 61.1%
Elijah Craig Small Batch Barrel Proof is a bold expression and as honest as Whiskey comes and is a great example of how charred oak barrel aging can make good Bourbon into great Bourbon.
