I saw on the bourbon exchange that a few people are starting to find the second release of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof. Anyone know when its supposed to make it to Louisiana?

Many thanks to those of you that recommended Elmer T Lee (particularly Dr Beardface). I picked it up today for the first time and find it very enjoyable.

From earlier in the thread:

Here's some notes from my tasting of it back around Christmas. Overall, it's a pretty good one, but it's often a love/hate thing for many people.

Nose: Tanginess, forward corny notes, cocunut, maple syrup, honey
Taste: Much like it smells, tangy and corny, honey and maple flavors and black cherry flavor, sour then it becomes a little spicier and woody
Finish: Moderate length, maple syrup, smokey oak

On an aside, they're doing a great job of limiting the supply and getting more people talking about it. People are seeking the heck out of it. I just hope more of the distillers don't follow that suit like Pappy.
