Review - Elijah Craig 18 Year Single Barrel Bourbon


Rating 4 Glasses



Tasting Notes

  • Color & Consistency: Rich maple syrup tapped straight from the tree. No log cabin crap here. Crooked legs but we're not sure what that means.
  • Nose: A dusty oak cabinet with cherry cough medicine spilled inside that just fell off the wall and was pieced back together with heavy construction adhesive.
  • Taste: Cherries and vanilla up front then caramel and blood orange. Oak on the nose doesn't translate into the flavor.
  • Finish: Vanilla. This thing lingers longer than your eccentric uncle Randall after a hearty holiday dinner.
  • Conclusion: Delicious. A good step up from Elijah Craig 12 and truly one of the best bourbons we have had to date. We would call it almost an endangered species so if you can find, buy it.
