Elijah Craig Barrel Proof has earned its place as a consistently high quality barrel proof bourbon. At 12 years old it dabbles in aged oak notes, but maintains a well-rounded flavor profile with each batch. A121, which means the first batch of the year released in January, 2021, is generally on par with previous releases. However, while it offers a nice balance of flavors, it doesn’t quite have the wow factor some of the past batches, such as B520, had. But don’t let that stop you from purchasing a bottle, as it’s a solid deal regardless.
