Elijah Craig 12 year old K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #431 Bourbon 750ml (ships as a 1.5L)
It's ECSB Time! We spend a lot of time making sure that these single barrels from Kentucky are superior to the already excellent selections from our beloved friends in the Blue Grass State. This barrel was a clear winner in the most recent round of tasting. The nose explodes out of the glass, huge notes of exotic honey, high grade maple syrup, sweet tea, and dark baking spices. The palate brings on more spices balancing what seemed to be a syrupy monster on the nose with strong zesty clove/cinnamon blend. The spiciness mellows on the finish allowing the subtle sweetness to return. A real drinker from a cask the yielded only 10 cases. It won't last long as you may know.
