650 mL bottle poured into an Eclipse snifter. 2011 bottle. Bottle #1491.
Appearance - Murky black with transparent edges. Not much of a head. Wispy surface.
Smell - Slightly sharp bourbon character, not quite as harsh as others. Very sweet smelling. Chocolate. Vanilla.
Taste - Lots of sugar, very sweet. Sweeter than other variants, which I don't understand. Maybe the EC barrels add sugar, but I don't understand why that would happen. Bourbon flavor is nice, rounded out by the sugars. Chocolate and vanilla.
Mouthfeel - Slick and creamier than the base beer. Medium carbonation. Sweet and barrel booze finish.
Overall - Similar to the Elijah Craig 20, without quite that great barrel character.
Serving type: bottle
