Henry McKenna Single Barrel Review

Henry McKenna Single Barrel has been known as a solid, mid-shelf, value bourbon.

Henry McKenna Single Barrel

Its specifications knock down many of the pins that bourbon fans want:

      • Bottled-in-Bond
      • 100 proof
      • 10-year age statement
      • Single barrel

So, given this distinction, it seemed a proper time to revisit Elijah Craig Barrel Proof.

Rebel Yell Single Barrel 10 Year 2016 vs. 2017

Rebel Yell Single Barrel

We have previously compared the 2016 release of Rebel Yell Single Barrel 10 Year to other bottles, such as Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond and even Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year. Now that we’ve received another release of Rebel Yell Single Barrel 10 Year, it’s time to see whether the magic of the first release can be duplicated.

Elijah Craig Small Batch Store Pick Review

Elijah Craig Small Batch

Our very first member review here at Flight Club ICT was a Heaven Hill horizontal review of Evan Williams, Henry McKenna and Elijah Craig single barrel/small batch offerings.

Today, we revisit that review with a newly acquired Store Pick offering — a single barrel, 11-year Elijah Craig bourbon.  We thought it would be helpful to see how that bottle, along with a newly acquired Non Age Stated (NAS) bottle, stacks up.
