Elijah Craig Small Batch has a delightfully complex nose, bringing aromas of vanilla with notes of sweet fruit and fresh mint. Smooth and warming on the palate, oak flavours with spicy accents, hints of smoke and nutmeg. A long, sweet, toasty finish. Rev. Elijah Craig is regarded as one of Bourbon's most important pioneers, noted as the first distiller to mature his whiskey using charred oak barrels. The Master Distillers at Heaven Hill follow in his pioneering footsteps, as they've been hand-selecting limited quantities of barrels to create the perfect blend for Elijah Craig Bourbon long before anyone else was calling it 'Small Batch'. It's this longstanding attention to detail that makes Elijah Craig Small Batch an essential addition to any Bourbon fan's collection.
