Ohhh the wonders of Bourbon...

An hour away from Louisville there's a lovely town of Bardstown where almost a century ago two brothers decided to make Whiskey. Right after Prohibition they set up shop and became the largest family-owned distillery in America in just a few decades. Heaven Hill Distillery is still owned by the Shapira family and they have no intentions to stop making the best Bourbon. Two Master Distillers, Denny Potter and Jodie Filiatreau, combine their experience and knowledge for the magic of Whiskey-making and produce critically acclaimed Spirits that amaze every Whiskey lover.

Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon, named Whisky of the year 2017 by Whisky Advocate is an experience of Bourbon in its purest form, uncut and straight from the cask. Aged for long 12 years in new charred oak barrels, every Whisky is in danger of being dominated by the oak flavor. But a sip of Elijah Craig brings forth phenomenal flavors and glamorous aromas. It's Bourbon at its apex and it will definitely offer you a big warm Kentucky Hug. Get two bottles: one to share with your seasoned friends, and one for yourself alone. Let your first sip be straight and taste the magic, then add a few drops of water and fine-tune the flavor.

There are wonders to be revealed in life.

Ratings & Reviews
Michael
Michael,
Amazing. This, along with Russell's Reserve Single Barrel, are probably the closest I have found to rival the complexity and sheer strength of George T. Stagg. And this one edges out Russell's due to the higher proof. I love the oaky, leathery, and brilliantly-spicy palate.

Over an ice block this is very pretty. Tried neat and it was way too hot for my taste.

Steve,
I have a couple of bottles of the B517 bottling and I have tried a couple other bottlings. They are all excellent and if you like the regular small batch and barrel proof bourbons this is a nice step up.

Ben,
Classic Bourbon with a lot of heat. To me, the heat was overpowering with certain meals and wouldn’t be able to enjoy as much as something else.

One of the best barrel proofs out there. Try it neat first, you won't regret it!
 
Kurt
Kurt,
Almost the perfect drink. Has that great vanilla, caramel note at the start. I really like the buttery, almost fruity finish with some heat on the finish. If you add a little water it calms the heat and gives it very smooth finish.

Scott,
I see another wrote, "Excellent, but not for the faint of heart." That's absolutely true. At the same time, adding an ice cube/a bit of water it opens up to an amazingly smooth & drinkable bourbon. Nice sweet finish.
 
Rory
Rory,
Without ice it is fire down your throat. Add a little ice and a little water and the flavor opens up. Once diluted it tends to come off pretty sweet and easy to approach.
