I'm gonna paste my entire tasting note that I wrote using Jeroen's tasting note program here (http://www.peatfreak.com
) because other than this, I have no words describing my new-found love of this bourbon, Elijah Craig 12 Yrs:
Nose: A MASSIVELY attractive nose. As elegant as they come with great depth and balance of ripe fruits, vanilla, oak & spices. There's a lot going on here, very lively. A sexy, meaty & beautiful nose that I can spend an entire evening with.
Palate: A big oily body with never-ending depth. Wonderful sweetness meets oaky vanilla and floral notes. Despite the strength this is extremely mellow.
Finish: A slightly bitter yet sweet and full finish.
Comments: Sheer un-adultered CLASS. Wow! Had I known this to be this delicious, I would have bought a bottle way back. Breath-taking stuff.
Score (1-100) in the 95's
