Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey
Alcohol type: Bourbon whiskey
Age: 12 years
Country of origin: Kentucky, US
Recent awards: World Whiskies Awards 2015 – Best Bourbon
Appearance: Dark copper
Palate/Taste: This bourbon jumps right out of the gate on the tip of the tongue with maple and caramel flavors giving way to rye and spiciness on the middle of the tongue. The age comes through on the tail with strong notes of oak and bitters.
Nose: The nose is greeted with vanilla and caramel up front with a definite undertone of aged oak. The aroma hints at the promise of some orange zest and citrus on the back end, though they don’t fully materialize.
