Heaven Hill, the producer of Elijah Craig, began a new batch numbering system on Elijah Craig Barrel Proof releases in the past year, making it far easier to determine when each batch was released. This batch is C917. The letter C represents the ‘3rd’ release of the year, while 917 represents the month and 2-digit year it was released. So C917 means the it is the 3rd batch of the year, released in September of 2017.
The previous 4 releases all saw a trend of steady decline in the proof in the bottle, ranging from a blistering 139.4º in B516 to 124.2º with B517. C917 reverses that trend to a degree, checking in at a respectable 131º.
