Product description

In 1789, Elijah Craig discovered greatness when he first charred oak barrels to make Bourbon. Today, we honor his innovative spirit with Toasted Barrel: a unique expression that is charred to start and toasted to finish. Twice barreled for added complexity, Toasted Barrel takes Elijah Craig's award-winning Small Batch Bourbon to new heights. After it's fully matured, this Bourbon is finished in a second, custom toasted new oak barrel, where it’s left to develop even more sweet oak flavor.

    As a recent bourbon fan I have been starting my bourbon journey on recommendations from friends, not a bad way to start. Recently I was in Ohio and looking for a new bourbon to call my own. I saw this bottle behind the counter and decided to give it a try. I was all in after the first sip. The flavors hit you like a tidal wave and it only gets better from there. After reading how hard it is to find I am now stuck with enjoying it and wishing the bottle to stay full.

    When I saw it I bought it, and now I am almost sad I did. Why, because there has been none in the state of Virginia to be found since. Elijah Craig Toasted Barrel is AMAZING. It needs, and cries out, to be a daily sipper. It IS that good.

    One of my all time favorite bourbons. Love the taste and finish. It would be my everyday drink if I could find.

    This is my favorite Elijah Craig bourbon. I can't find it in Ohio, so it looks like I will be making another trip to Heaven Hill.

    I really enjoyed this bourbon. It's worth searching for, because it was not easy to find. The price is right given the amazing flavor. So good my wife loves it. Enjoy it neat or with a cigar.


Bourbon is a corn-based, aged spirit that, while legally can be produced anywhere in the U.S., is Kentucky’s signature liquor; in fact, Kentucky distilleries make 95% of the world’s bourbon and the Bluegrass State hosts over a million visitors annually for bourbon tasting tourism.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
Much like how a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square, bourbon is a whiskey — but because of the stricter standards set for bourbon distillers, most whiskies are not considered bourbons.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Bourbon’s ingredient list is short and sweet (literally): corn, other grains, water and yeast. Barley, wheat and rye grains are often featured in the mash composition alongside the liquor’s signature corn base, but even so, the FDA considers straight bourbon as a gluten-free product that is safe for those with Celiac Disease or for individuals who suffer from other forms of gluten intolerance.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
