Heaven Hill’s 2023 Elijah Craig Barrel Proof bourbon whiskey program concludes with C923.

All releases in this series follow a standard naming system. The “B” in the name stands for the second batch in an annual A, B, C line. The “9” denotes the release month, September, while the 23 represents the current year.

Elijah Craig Barrel Proof B523 shows an age statement of 13 years and 7 months, representing the youngest barrel in the batch. It is non-chill-filtered and uncut, and bottled at 133 proof.


The suggested retail price is $74.99 per 750-ml. bottle.

Beverage Dynamics review: Generally, ECBP has two extremes of flavor. On one end are the “candy bombs,” with sweet confectionary notes, like last year’s A122. On the other is earthy, chocolatey whiskey like the recent B523. This latest release, ECBP C923, is the latter, with ample earthiness and dark chocolate above a backbone of lovely heat and oak. The higher-than-usual age and proof provide additional layers of richness, making this a memorable bottle that belongs in the collection of any Heaven Hill fan.


Starting with this year’s batches, Elijah Craig Barrel Proof will now be barreled in small batches with varying age statements. Each batch will have a unique flavor profile and proof, as in the past, but now also a unique age statement that details aging down to the month. This expanded statement has transitioned from the side of the bottle to the front label. All other qualities remain the same.
