Beast Masters Club released a series of 3 Elijah Craig picks this year “Smell”, “The” and “Beaver” and while I didn’t need that many EC picks I did decide to pickup Beaver.
Age: 10 years
Abv: 94 proof
Nose: Sharp vanilla and oak notes with sweet caramel underneath.
Taste: More caramel and rich oak with vanilla extract and faint spice. Nice mouthfeel for the proof.
Finish: Medium length finish with vanilla cream and a building spice.
Overall this was on par with most Elijah Craig picks I’ve had. It was heavy on the vanilla but I enjoyed it. I usually think EC picks are a great value but with Beast Masters Club’s New York prices and shipping I would have gladly settled for a local pick.
TL;DR: About what you would expect from an EC pick.
7 - a great whiskey I’d order at a bar
