Product Description

Product Description

Surprisingly light and delicate on the nose, some grass, mint, citrus and vanilla with just a touch of cocoa. Toffee, malt and rye in the mouth, a touch of dried fruit, spice and burnt sugar with a long complex finish. “It is a bourbon of almost unfathomable depth and has something for everyone. Brilliant.” Jim Murray

Product Description

Elijah Craig 12-year-old is a true Small Batch premium Bourbon, and had that distinction before the term even existed.

Bottled exclusively from a dumping of 100 barrels or less, the brand carries the name of Rev. Elijah Craig, the Baptist minister widely considered the "Father of Bourbon." He discovered the method of making true Kentucky Bourbon when his stored his wares in barrels that had been charred in a fire.

Elijah Craig is highly acclaimed - it was awarded "Best of the Best Bourbon" in 2001 by Whisky Magazine and received a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Whiskey expert Stuart MacLean Ramsay writes, "Rich, full bodied and warming with sweet oak, caramel and rye flavors; thick finish with notes of licorice and vanilla."

Michael Jackson, Whisky Magazine writes, "Nose: Real bourbon vanilla, with a touch of candy-store sweetness. Palate: Firm, malty, sweet. Some malty fruitiness (apricot). A suggestion of cilantro. Finish: Licorice. Rooty. Comments: Less structured than might be expected in a 12-year-old, but a perilously drinkable, appetizing bourbon. Rating 7 "

5.0 out of 5 stars Also Wonderful! 14 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
I really deserve more than 5 stars! I purchased the 12 yr Elijah Craig for my younger son and the 18 yr old for my eldest. It tasted wonderful and left me wishing for more! I am not a drinker of spirits but this is truly a wonderful bourbon. It rolls off the palate leaving various smokey hints and other flavours. I would thoroughly recommend this bourbon to the initiated and the newcomers to bourbon, they will thoroughly enjoy it! I love it! I think I will get a bottle for myself as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack Daniels really? 18 Jan 2014

As far as Bourbons go....this is top notch.

Enjoy mixed with a few cubes of ice.

It is indeed very hearty, but why else spend this price?

Not as sweet as JD - I have only seen 2/3 pubs in London offer this beverage.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best for the price 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
This is quite a nice bourbon..but far from the best at the price. There are much more superior bourbons for less money (Makers Mark, Bulleit, Woodford Reserve).

This isn't very smooth and doesn't go down too well after 2-3...

I'd say try a different one unless it is a particular favourite.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it used to be. 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
I've had many of these bottles and they're always nice but I must confess that they have been declining in quality for some time now. They are still a good option, and better than Woodford Reserve on the strength difference alone, but I'm inclined this days to save the 35 and put it towards a independently bottle 45 bourbon from a specialist whisky retailer. Shame.

Still good but not what it used to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars very smooth bourbon 11 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
My husband first tried this bourbon in a whiskey shop innCambridge, he is a single malt guy so was reluctant to try bourbon. The owner offered a sample which he tried and loved. Its quite difficult to get hold of but makes a wonderful present for whiskey lovers. The bottle doesn't last long so limit drinking to you and only your best friends! Highly recommended.
