Top reviews for Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon:
— Delicious, I tried original Elijah Craig some time ago and was leery about trying the barrel strength because I did not find it very pleasing but I have now found another favorite. It has lots of character from the wonderfully smooth sweet spicy start to the peppery hot finish. Keeps me wanting more.
Member Reviews and Ratings of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon
solid, reliably good BP whiskey, but not sure why flaviar is asking 100$ over typical store prices.
Sweet start. Strong finish. The bite at the end of every drink is worth the $60 the bottle costs. Barrel proof is the way to go.
Loved the strong taste and lasting impact of the bourbon. Great for sipping and enjoyed it being in your face the entire time.
great go to whiskey at a more than reasonable price
Amazing taste. LOL at the $147 price on here. I’ve never paid more than $75 for a bottle and as low as $60. The prices on here are a joke sometimes.
Elijah Craig has long been a favorite and the barrel proof is the winner overall in the line. It does however not stand up to other barrel proofs that have more flavor for less cost. It is still smooth and delicious, just not a favorite at the price point.
One of my favorites, both on the nose and the flavor. The prices on here are a joke though. I've never paid more than $65, and Flaviar wants more than double that.
Lol @ the $210 price. It’s delicious, but it’s an $80 tops.
When you need that little kick. Strong grains and sweet introduction. Subtle end.
Very enjoyable but there are better out there for a much better price in my opinion. Glad I got to try it but I see this the same as Johnny Walker Blue, it will not be a bottle I have to have again.
Having had different batches, I can say without a doubt that the previous ones were truer to the flavor wheel and description. They were exceptional and leaving me wanting nothing else. The newer batch has more "heat" and much less of the caramel/vanilla/butterscotch overtones. Candidly, it lacks the character I appreciated of the other. Still good, but...
Too much heat for my preferences.

Try and you'll be hooked
Too strong to enjoy any flavor or other characteristics of the drink.
Excellent. Good burn but nice and mellow.
Another bench mark. Medium flavor toasted oak spice and caramel
Had the famed second batch from 2017. A powerful drink with a mega spice bomb. Many flavors to find in the nose. You almost need to warm up to this proof with a weaker bourbon to start.
Very good flavor. Smooth and nice finish.
A beautifully smooth sweet almost syrupy feel. I enjoy this fine spirit when celebrating life.
Great bourbon, has a little robost in it from the barrel, but all around excellent for the cabinet!!
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.
Had it in a old fashioned and it was awesome
My daily dram. perfect for straight
Very tasty, wonderful aroma.
Love it. Very smooth.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
