Potent, intense, consistent. Those three words sum up Elijah Craig Barrel Proof in a nutshell. Where the brand can now sometimes feel like been-there-done-that, there is no denying that this bourbon always brings its “A” game. Its flavors are always potent, proof intense, and it consistently delivers a quality pour time and time again. It might not always reach the height some of its competitors reach with certain releases, but its price and availability always make up for it. Batch C920 doesn’t quite match the excellent Batch B520 from earlier this year, but it's close, and probably splitting hairs. One can never have enough Elijah Craig Barrel Proof, and Heaven Hill proves over and over that it's one of the company’s marque releases.
