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.
Twice barreled for added complexity, Elijah Craig Toasted Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey takes our award-winning Small Batch Bourbon to new heights. After it’s fully matured, we finish this Bourbon in a second, custom toasted new oak barrel, where it’s left to develop even more sweet oak flavor.
NOSE: Aromas and flavors of pekoe tea, new leather, cinnamon, cedar, and jasmine.
PALATE: Warm and comforting notes of peach preserves and brown sugar erupt with a chipotle spice.
FINISH: Deeply layered and profound.
