Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Releases by Proof

Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Release Cheat Sheet


In the fall of 2013 Heaven Hill Distillery released the first Elijah Craig Barrel Proof (ECBP) which quickly became one of the hottest bourbons in the market. ECBP is a 12 year old uncut, unfiltered bourbon which Heaven Hill releases once a quarter. Aside from the great flavor and high proof what make ECBP even greater is it’s retail price is between $40-$55. With such a low price it’s hard to find a better bourbon for the money. That’s assuming you’re able to find a bottle in the first place :)

Since there is a new release each quarter it can be confusing trying to keep track of each release. That is why I put together an ECBP cheat sheet so you know exactly which release you’re enjoying.

Tasting Notes from Heaven Hill:

Color: Deep Amber
Aroma: Caramel with oak, fruit notes of apple and orange
Taste: Caramel, vanilla and butterscotch along with spices of black pepper and cinnamon in the back of the palate
Finish: Nice layered finish of all flavors; fades slowly with a hint of cool spearmint at the most lingering end
