Attention: if anyone is taking a trip to visit Heaven Hill and doesn’t want to buy their one bottle allocation of Elijah Craig Barrel Select 125 Proof “Grenade” please buy it anyway and I will buy it from you at a premium. Yes; it’s that good. Ok, I kind of jumped the gun on the review here, but I’d appreciate you still reading.
Nice deep amber, cooper color in the grenade barrel 200ml bottle.
Cinnamon sticks, graham crackers, butterscotch, s’mores, vanilla, marzipan and whipped cream. Heat but not too much.
Amazing mouthfeel, complex flavors from the nose, strong Kentucky hug but not overheated. The finish is long and keeps going for over two minutes.
This is so good and the only complaint is that it only comes in a 200ml bottle. I wish they sold these outside of the gift shop. Delicious! 97/100.
