Bottled exclusively from a dumping of 200 barrels or less, the brand carries the name of the Rev. Elijah Craig, the man who discovered the method of making true Kentucky Bourbon when he stored his wares in barrels that had been charred in a fire.
To sip Elijah Craig 12 Year Barrel Proof B521 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is to experience Bourbon in its purest form: uncut, straight from the barrel, and without chill filtering. Each bottle is hand labeled with its unique proof and batch number; but the nose, taste, and finish are pure Elijah Craig.
NOSE: Caramel with toasted oak, fruit notes of apple and orange.
PALATE: Rich vanilla, caramel, and butterscotch along with spices of black pepper & cinnamon at the back of the palate.
FINISH: Nicely layered showcasing all flavors, fades slowly then lingers as it cools.
