Great nose and palate, not overly complex but enough wood and spice present to balance out the natural sweetness thanks to the rye inclusion. An accomplished entry-level bourbon.
Quite ‘raw’ tasting with more than a hint of copper giving a real new make spirit vibe and lots of sappy wood thanks to the virgin oak finish, overall educational and enjoyable.
Great! Powewrful, polished wood and spices with a lovely sweet backdrop. 87/100
Full bodied and full flavoured, very enjoyable for a 4 year old Bourbon and not overly sweet or corny. 80/100
Perhaps a little too woody for me with a hint of dry pencil shavings, otherwise a good balance of sweet and spice. 82/100
Some depth and well-balanced, reveals a little more complexity and not as sweet as some Bourbons. 84/100
Some interesting peach flavour but not a lot going on here that excites me. 80/100
A relaxed and easy drinking bourbon, soft and sugary and full of vanillic oak wood. 80/100
A flavour journey rather than destination, plenty of spice and heat but also packed full of vanilla and nutty oak. Superb as it comes but takes a drop of water well if you like it a little calmer. 85/100
Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon Whisky Review: Another sample at Elijah Craig small batch and yet further disappointment, sadly this just doesn’t cut it like the 12yo did. 78/100
