Tasting Notes: Elijah Craig Oak Liquor Cabinet Pick #2

The latest Oak Liquor Cabinet Elijah Craig pick dropped this week. I was part of the group that picked the barrel so I’m a little biased but I think it’s a great pick. No review but here’s my notes:


Elijah Craig Oak Liquor Cabinet Pick #2

Age: 10 years

Abv: 94 proof

Price: $30

Barrel No: 5594647

Rickhouse: V

Floor: 5


Nose: Oak, nuts and vanilla extract notes.

Taste: Vanilla, caramel and nuts with warm spice and leather towards the end. Nice mouthfeel for the proof.

Finish: Long slightly dry finish with oak, baking spice and vanilla


Overall these 10+ year old Elijah Craig picks for $30-35 are a great buy and come pretty close to filling the gap left by McKenna 10 year albeit with 6 fewer proof points. I’ve got 5 different picks on hand so a blind tasting is definitely needed.


TL;DR: A more refined take on Elijah Craig Small Batch with a great finish
