Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon Batch C919 is the 3rd and final release from 2019 (C = September, 19 = 2019) of Heaven Hill’s 12 year old cask strength / barrel proof bourbon. It’s also one of the last bastions of 10+ year old cask strength bourbon for under $100, although as bourbon continues to become more popular, it also becomes just a little more difficult to find and more expensive by the day.
Another major drawing point is that every release is truly small batch, as the ABV and overall personality will vary, so every batch brings a different experience. As a result, everyone will have their own personal favorite release. Surprisingly, I don’t drink as much Elijah Craig Barrel Proof as I probably should, so I don’t have a favorite. And yes, I am quite behind on these releases.
Time for me to re-experience this bourbon in this Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon C919 review.
