Color: deep amber
Aroma: Buttery vanilla, toasted nuts and caramel
Taste: Light bodied, yet complex; cream, almonds, vanilla bean and charred wood
Finish: Crisp, dry and lingering, reminiscent of find Cognac
Wine Enthusiast 98 points - Dark honey color, lushly aromatic, fragrance like a bouquet of wildflowers: honeysuckle and clover. Viscous and luxurious on the tongue, it offers bold flavors of dark toffee, lots of oak, and finishes with bitter almond and a touch of raisin. Mellow; hardly any bite when chilled, which makes it highly sippable, almost like Cognac.
Elijah Craig 18-Year-Old Single Barrel was first introduced in 1994, and quickly gained legendary status at a time when super-premium Bourbon offerings were few and far between. As demand for the rare whiskey grew, there weren’t enough 18-year-old barrels that met our Master Distillers’ strict quality standards, so the bottling was discontinued in 2012. Since then, stocks have come back into line, allowing Elijah Craig 18-Year-Old Single Barrel to again be available.
