All about Elijah Craig
Elijah Craig Bourbon is the flagship premium spirit coming out of the Heaven Hill Distillery. The name comes from one of the god-fathers of Kentucky Whiskey-making, the Reverend Elijah Craig who devised a few production improvements back in the 1700s.
It is available in a few special production single-barrel releases and some exclusive long-aged versions, but the 12YO is the core of the Elijah Craig line.
It is complex, rich and toasty on the nose, with a full flavor profile of ripe apple and sweet Madeira Wine complimenting the vanilla and spice. The finish is creamy-smooth with toasted oak and a tad of maple.
