Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 61.1% (122.2 Proof)

Heaven Hill's Elijah Craig bourbon is a reliably excellent dram, and this barrel proof limited edition kicks it up a notch, by the simple expedient of bottling at full natural strength, without any dilution whatsoever.

These Barrel Proof Elijah Craigs have all their flavours dialled up to 11 - unsurprising given the epic cask strength of 61.1%. The big advantage of this massive strength is that it allows everyone to find their own ideal strength for their dram - most drinkers will find it beneficial to add a few drops of water to allow the whiskey to open up a bit and determine their own preferred level of strength and flavour.
