Remarkable dram from the birthplace of Bourbon. 

Not far away from Louisville, KY, there’s a small town that’s known as the capital of Bourbon: Bardstown. Right after the unholy period of Prohibition, two brothers decided it was the perfect time to make Whiskey. In just a few decades, they made the American dream come true and turned their business into the largest family-owned distillery. Heaven Hill Distillery is still owned by the Shapira family, and in 1986, they came up with a super-premium brand of Bourbon and named it after Reverend Elijah Craig, who allegedly invented “true Kentucky Bourbon”.

Elijah Craig Single Barrel 18YO received three double gold medals, two gold medals, and the title of the best small batch Bourbon of 2017. Master Distiller Parker Beam made sure this opulent Bourb’ starts with an aromatic bang that builds up to a fantastic palate and a memorable finish. Sourced from one single barrel, Elijah Craig 18 is a unique Spirit made for aficionados by aficionados. We drink it neat, and so should you.

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

Hugh,
Not a bad bottle. I’ll buy again. Quick finish but a good daily drink.

Andilee,
Bites of Carmel and honey to the nose, a bit of spice and then a smooth finish. Good, but not the best bourbon I’ve had.

One of my favorite bourbons. Worthy of sipping straight or on the rocks. Doesn't need anything else.

Christina,
Perhaps the best bourbon I've ever tried. Smooth, oaky, bit of spice, a finish that gets more delicious over time. A real treat.
 
Cody
Cody,
Excellent flavor profile. Very short finish though.
 
Mark
Mark,
I thought that this was going to finish with a bite, like most bourbons tend to do. This, however, started sweet, finished warm, and went down like a throat cuddle. If you're lucky enough to taste this, let alone owning it, you'll be a better human.

Rather disappointing

Love it, smooth but pricey
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, balanced, Straight Bourbon Whiskey with a rich birth with notes of toasty oak & caramel; while a sweet life adds notes of vanilla, herbs & spice; that leads to a toasty death with notes of smoke & dark chocolate.

Tried this for the first time eating out at a restaurant and right away fell in love. Smooth, sweet and perfect with steak IMO.
