Elijah Craig Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 18 year old
|Region||United States, Kentucky|
A unique Bourbon showcasing our Master Distillers' expertise, Elijah Craig 18-Year-Old Single Barrel makes for an incredibly smooth sipping experience. Ready to experience some of the oldest Bourbon barrels in Kentucky? Our 18-Year-Old Bourbon is bottled solely from the contents of one barrel, not the mingling of many. This expression of Bourbon-making craftsmanship is bold and robust. Truly a Bourbon for the avid collector, this bottle has won countless awards and is regularly listed as a top choice by those who appreciate its smooth yet complex flavor. Warm, deep leather color. Aromas of aged oak, spiced vanilla, with notes of mint and chocolate. Taste is richly textured, nutty, and semisweet. Initial bursts of honey give way to toasted wood and pleasant char. Finish is lively and engaging, then lingers with vanilla and pepper.
Due to inventory shortages, this bottling had been discontinued; in fall 2015, it returned after a three-year hiatus. This is a robust, full-flavored whiskey, scented with oak and toffee. It tastes almost like an Old Fashioned, meaning distinct orange peel and cherry notes intertwined with the vanilla and caramel. The long finish offers vanilla, oak and orange peel. 15,000 bottles released.
