The nose is very nice and very typical of Elijah Craig with lots of polished wood notes and some spice. The palate is dry and spicy with lots of oak and a touch of acid; that sourness of the acid dominates the early finish but is then followed by some brown sugar and really nice oaky bourbon notes.

 

Overall, these super aged Elijah Craigs have not impressed me. I'm a fan of oak, but I think this one just has a bit too much and the sour notes didn't help.
