Review: Elijah Craig Bourbon

Elijah Craig Bourbon 12 Year Tasting Notes

Elijah Craig 12 Year Bourbon - photo copyright Cheri LoughlinAroma: Not quite ripe peaches. Salt water taffy.

Taste:Grassy grain such as rye or wheat. Almost like Wheat Chex or Wheaties. Same watery feel as some other Heaven Hill bourbons. Kind of barbeque sauce flavor in the back. Not too sweet. Love the deep, rich color. Cherry right of the bat with wood tone. Thicker than Single Barrel. Carmel chocolate smooth. Funny after taste in the lingering finish. Sweet around the edges. Little burny. Mint at the end. Tea flavor such as black tea bark.
