This can justifiably be considered the first 'small batch' bourbon, although it predates the introduction of that term. Elijah Craig is a classic Bourbon, with sweet, mature aromas of caramel, vanilla, spice and honey, plus a sprig of mint. Rich, full-bodied and rounded on the mellow palate, with caramel, malt, corn, rye and a hint of smoke. Sweet oak, liquorice and restrained vanilla dominate the finish.
