The first 2020 batch of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof delivers all the classic flavors you’ve come to expect. Rich in okay and sweeter sugary flavors, Batch A120 delivers a well rounded but fiery sip. The proof shines through, especially in the long lingering heat that develops in the finish. It’s not the best showing for the brand, however it’s also far from the worst and should please most Elijah Craig and high proof bourbon fans alike.
