Top reviews for Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon:

— 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.

— 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.

— One of the best barrel proofs out there. Try it neat first, you won't regret it!

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.

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.

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.
