Elijah Craig 12 yo, 47%

Review #489
This is a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey from Heaven Hill Distillery. This is very mild on the nose at first. After some minutes in the glass and a bit of warmth, you start to feel the richness and flavours. Dried fruits, dry oak and honey. Not very sweet though.

In the taste, the flavours come right away alongside a nice alcohol burn. Spices, oak and sweet raisins. The finish is warm and long and holds the oak nicely. The oiliness just covers your mouth. Some burned caramel comes crawling forward as well.

It is not overly complex, but it gets the job done! It is thick and full of flavours and is just a pleasure to sit and enjoy! A classic Bourbon which, in my opinion, would be a great introduction for people who is new to this Kentucky spirit! I will give this 85/100 (21/22/21/21).
