r/Bourbon 2020 Elijah Craig

Year: Selected for r/Bourbon in 2020 by t8ke.

Retailer: Retailed through Maison Corbeaux.

Notes: Rich cake batter on the nose, cream, coffee, a bit of oak and some creme brulee. Sweet on the palate, rich for the ABV, quite a bit of dessert. Light berry note before cocoa, cream, tobacco and some praline step in. Long finish, musty tobacco, creamy nougat, and really rich cocoa and light brown sugar. More oak than you’d expect, but not too tannic and dry. Drinks really well for only 47% ABV.
