Elijah Craig was a Baptist reverend that is credited with creating the process of aging whiskey in new charred oak barrels, which earned him the moniker of "Father of Bourbon"
The Elijah Craig brand of whiskey is made by Heaven Hill Distillery. The small batch comes without an age statement but it's said to be aged 8-12 years in a #3 char barrel. Bottled at 47% abv.
The mash bill is 78% corn, 12% malted barley and 10% rye.
This bottle was graciously donated by Paul from Top Shelf Wine and Spirits for us to review.
Their regular price is $28.99
Currently on sale for $24.99
You can find it here: Elijah Craig Small Batch
Top Shelf Wine and Spirits just had a soft launch for their brand new online store, so I encourage you to check out their wide selection of whiskey (and other spirits) available for purchase. They will ship to any state that it is legally allowed.
We also have a promo code you can use on every item you order: BROLIC2
For under $30 this is a great buy and seriously under rated whiskey.
Watch our video review here:
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
