Detailed Description

As you can see, Elijah Craig Barrel Proof | Batch 1 features the old label and came in a differently shaped bottle than the new universal Elijah Craig bottles. These squat, rounded bottles have become affectionately known as “pirate bottles”, and were used for all Elijah Craig bottlings until 2016.

Sometime around 2011-2012, the ECBP pre-batch gift shop release came out. Nobody knows how many (or how few) bottles were produced, but they’re pretty rare. Seeing the success of the first release, Heaven Hill decided to make it official, with a new saddle-leather label, red “Barrel Proof” lettering, hand-written proofs/ABVs, and a photonegative cabin behind “Elijah Craig”. Perhaps to hedge their bets, Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Batch 1 - also called Batch A313 (A= 1st for the year, 3 = March, 13 = 2013) was still a gift shop-only release.

What makes these different or special relatives to the “new” Elijah Craig Barrel Proofs? Besides the labeling, bottle shape, and cork, there’s something about the old labels that is richer, a bit older, maybe some other je ne sais quoi that isn’t tangible.
