Elijah Craig Barrel Proof "Batch B519" Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1419487 93 points Whisky Advocate

 Keeps true to this award-winning whiskey’s oak-driven style, with aromas of lead pencil, leather, and fresh sawdust, balanced by dense fruitiness and tinged with herbal licorice and eucalyptus. Brawny and tannic on the palate, it’s reminiscent of sucking on a cherry Popsicle stick, balancing sweet caramel, brown sugar, and molasses with persistent oak, cedar shingle, clove, and paprika. A rustic, powerful, and robust bourbon. (JL, Fall 2019)

K&L Notes

The exceptional full strength version of Elijah Craig has become one of the most well regarded new releases in years. Luckily they've been able to offer it at a very reasonable price, and while it continues to be allocated, it is not as elusive as some of the other high-proof, limited releases on the market today. An exceptional bottle that should be on most whiskey lovers' bucket lists.

I tasted this side by side with the C919 batch, and I must admit that I'm surprised that I liked this one more at the end of the day. Without water, this comes across as rather harsh and sharp mistress, with a full "in your face" attitude. But with water...a refined lady of class and beauty; lively and ready to dance the night away. Dried oak shavings, cedar, and dried orange peel are the biggest notes for me, followed by some cinnamon, dried yellow flowers, and a touch of vanilla. Spices and a slight note of salinity reside in the finish. This is a more subtle and elegant bourbon than I normally see...a truly unique and wonderful expression that leaves me in a contemplative mood.

How can a brand that has been around for more than two centuries always seem to hit the fantastic mark every single time with their whiskeys? I wish I had their secret, but I'll settle with enjoying the fruits of their labor. Twelve year old non-chill filtered Bourbon for $60 is a deal I'll take all day long. Rich and supple, but not without a strong kick from the 61.1% EtOH. If you can bear to blend this one, I think it would make a pretty killer Manhattan.

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. I relished the opportunity to do a side by side. While both B519 and C919 scream Elijah Craig, they do offer different experiences. B519 has a punchy nose laden with dark cherry fruit, vanilla, baked apples, and a cool cinnamon and fresh sawn oak note that reminds me of a lumber yard after it's rained. It smells like it'll be luscious on the palate. And it is. A buttery texture combines with all the sweetest spices on the tongue. It's a symphony of wood spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice. A shocking amount of fruit shows up in addition to all the wood influence. The sweeter caramel and fruit notes are balanced out by pepper - particularly with the addition of a few drops of water. It's a beautiful whisky with poise and a long, long finish.
