Elijah Craig Toasted Barrel Bourbon 750ml
Color: Burnished copper.
Aroma: Delightfully complex with notes of vanilla bean, sweet fruit and fresh mint.
Taste: Smooth and warm, pleasantly woody with accents of spice, smoke and nutmeg.
Finish: Long, sweet and slightly toasty.
The nose will knock you off your feet. Lots of rye, barrel, heath bar and leather. The palate is ridiculously viscous, with cinnamon candies, rye, barrel, roasted vanilla bean and chocolate.

An exceptional bottle that should be on most whiskey lovers' bucket lists. It's very rare that we can offer more than one batch of ECBP at a time. Given the immense drinkability of these I always finish my bottle or two before the next batch is released and don't typically get a shot at purchasing more.
