Elijah Craig Toasted Barrel Bourbon
On the nose, toasted marshmallows, rich caramel, vanilla, and baking spices. Light undertones of oak, summer fruits, and Granny Smith apples can also be teased out. Sweeter flavors of graham cracker, chocolate, and caramel contrast nutmeg and pepper spice notes on the palate. A touch of seasoned wood is evident, but fleeting. The presentation of flavors is sweet and enjoyable. On the finish a blast of rye spice is followed by a rich caramel, brown sugar sweetness. Fireball candy heat along with hints of tobacco and oak lightly tease as the flavors taper off.
