Product description

Elijah Craig is credited as the first distiller to age his whiskey in charred oak barrels, earning his place in history as the 'Father of Bourbon.' The charred barrel transformed the clear liquid inside into an intense amber whiskey made rich with the flavors of the wood which we now recognize as Bourbon. Elijah Craig Small Batch is distilled, aged, and bottled in Kentucky from a traditional Bourbon mashbill of 78% Corn, 10% Rye and 12% Malted Barley and then aged for 8 to 12 years in #3 char new American oak barrels. The result of each Small Batch is a signature warm spice and subtle smoke flavor. Winner of "Best Small Batch Bourbon" and Double Gold medal at San Francisco World Spirits Competition and a 93 Point, "Excellent, Highly Recommended" rating at the Ultimate Spirits Competition

    I’m new to bourbon and have read a lot of reviews to get recommendations/insight. Elijah Craig is highly regarded and suggested for neophytes looking to go a little deeper. Elijah Craig was easy for me to sip - I find it similar to Buffalo Trace, but with less pepper. It has all the classic bourbon notes - over ripe banana, vanilla, and caramel. I highly recommend it!

    Has been my go to Kentucky bourbon for sometime. Price point is spot on and the quality is comparable to higher priced Bourbons.

    Nice, smooth Bourbon with a good finish. Definite cinnamon and vanilla flavors. While it isn't the best Bourbon I've had, it is a good one.

FAQs

Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon is made of a blend of select whiskeys, each aged between 8 and 12 years. Whiskey historians will note that this was not always the case — up until early 2016, Elijah Craig included a statement on their labeling proclaiming a 12-year aging time. They dropped this in favor of a No Age Statement, though you can be certain that their whiskeys will all receive between eight and a dozen years in the barrel.
The obvious way to enjoy the subtleties of Elijah Craig Small Batch is to sip it neat, but there are plenty of ways to take it further. A time-honored staple (and one that Elijah Craig is particularly well suited for) is the Old Fashioned. Combine a quarter-ounce of simple syrup, 3 dashes of bitters, and Elijah Craig Small Batch in a mixing glass and stir it until it’s chilled. Then strain it over a single large ice cube into a double old-fashioned glass. An orange swath and a brandied cherry make excellent garnishes.
