Elijah Craig Smal Batch has been called “Best of the Best”. We agree. 
 
Heaven Hill Distillers is unique. They are one of the oldest and largest Bourbon distillers in the world, they have the second largest standing inventory of aging Bourbon, and they have grown to become the seventh largest supplier of spirits in the US. BUT … they are still family owned. In fact, they are the only family-owned production house left in Kentucky. God bless the Shapira family! The spirit brands owned and controlled by Heaven Hill includes Evan Williams, Elijah Craig, and their namesake Heaven Hill, and many dozens more. 
 
If you are already a fan of Elijah Craig Bourbon — and who isn’t — you might already know that the Small Batch product was released in early 2016 as a non-age-statement (NAS) replacement for the Elijah Craig 12 year old. Small Batch is a mix of genuine Elijah Craig aged between 8 to 12 years and blended to taste. Of course they did this to meet demand, and yes the “average age” is now a bit younger. But don’t let the NAS slow you down. Seriously … it’s delicious, 47% ABV, and in its two short years it has won double-gold medals and been named “Best of the Best” and “Best Bourbon” … twice. 

SmartAss Corner
The humongous Heaven Hill warehouses look like like they are being swallowed by “The Thing.” But the creeping black mildew climbing the sides of the buildings is “Baudoinia Compniacensis” — an alcohol-loving fungus common to distilleries, liquor warehouses, and bakeries that feeds on “the angels share” evaporating from the casks.

Smooth, goes down easy. Very nice after taste. Good flavor
 
guest
guest,
Full bodied whiskey with oaky caramel flavors very robust and burns the back of the tongue slightly but the thickness and flavor make up for it
 
Lisa
Lisa,
Not great
 
Derek
Derek,
With all the hype, I was expecting something better. It was okay, but I think Buffalo Trace and Eagle Rare are better.
 
JAMES
JAMES,
Really good - balanced just all around good Greg a bottle excellent value
 
Anthony
Anthony,
I find these locally around the $22 price range and it is a great drinker, great for not emptying your wallet also
 
Cale

What a wonderful drink. Sweet. Lightly smokey and Salty butterscotch. Must have on hand bourbon.

Great quality for the price. My all time favorite. I prefer it neat, but it makes a good old fashioned too.
 
Charles
Charles,
If you like your bourbon on the oaky-side, EC will be your go-to bourbon. At the $30 price range, I challenge you to find a better value. Better yet, many stores pick private barrels which gets you the single barrel experience, making EC a no-brainer. Grab one and let me know what you think.

Definitely smell the toffee up front. Very smooth and sweet at the beginning, with spiciness on the back end followed by a little smoke.

A bit on the sweeter side for me, but less than JD. For the cost it is a decent sipping whiskey. For the value of E.C. I gave it 7 stars
 
EMMA
EMMA,
Awesome flavor and depth. I like this neat or with a little herbal bitters.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Very underrated, a great buy. Smooth, pleasing bite, I taste cinnamon more in this bourbon than most, a light sweet cinnamon like a cinnamon roll with some caramel.

This is not even close to the 12 year and overpriced now. I still am nursing a case of 12 yr I put back. I would rather drink Larceny for $25.

Mediocre.

This is one of my 2 favorite bourbons. The other is Evan Williams Single Barrel, EC's sister bourbon! It just depends on my mood, as to which I prefer on any given day!
