Elijah Craig 12 (Ink & Elm selection) Review

This is a restaurant barrel selection of Elijah Craig 12 (selected by now defunct restaurant Ink & Elm). It’s bottled at 46% ABV.

Nose: Strong yeast and rye bread up front, slightly muted overall but becomes a bit buttery and sweeter after a few minutes

Palate: Heavy rye/oak combo at first with a slightly pepper fresh baked bread.

Finish: As oak mellows out, rye begins to shine. Rather dry overall, but lasts a long time.

Rating: 83/100 – A solid EC12, but leaves something to be desired.

Value for the money: Since this restaurant went under, I doubt these bottles will be spotted anywhere, but I wouldn’t value it more than a regular EC12.
