They say Elijah kind of invented Bourbon. Well he didn’t. Great man though!
 
This Kentucky Bourbon is made by Heaven Hill Distillers, the only remaining private and family-owned distillery in Kentucky, headquartered in Bardstown. In 1996, Heaven Hill's production plant was almost completely destroyed by fire. The company survived and while fermenting, mashing, and distilling now occurs at the new Louisville distillery, aging, bottling, and shipping still occur in Bardstown.
 
Elijah Craig Bourbon is named after a Baptist preacher in Virginia. He has sometimes been credited with the invention of Bourbon Whiskey. The story says he kept a warehouse where he stored barrels and one day experienced a devastating fire. He used the charred casks regardless and found they imparted a lovely character.
 
SmartAss & Trivia:
All of the master distillers at Heaven Hill since its founding have been members of the Beam family. You know Jim Beam, yeah, that Jim, Beam Jim.

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

Diogenes,
A bit hot and a tad bit too sweet for my tastes. I've had the barrel strength and thought it was fantastic, but this just wasn't quite as balanced as I'd hoped. Vanilla and caramel come through strong. I think this is a bit more of a rocks drink. But at this price point I have no problems keeping a bottle on hand.

Very nice. Surprisingly deep flavor for the price. Just below something like Four Roses small batch but much better than anything else I've had at the $30 price point
