Elijah Craig bourbon was named after the famous baptist minister, who started distilling whiskey in Virginia in 1789 and is thought to be a first person to mature spirit in the charred oak barrels, and is known today as “The Father of Bourbon”.
The Elijah Craig 18yr Single Barrel was first introduced in 1994. It was one of the oldest single barrel bourbons on the market when it came out. Due to its popularity and limited availability it quickly gained a cult status and became very sought after by collectors.
Wine Enthusiast 98 points – Dark honey color, lushly aromatic, fragrance like a bouquet of wildflowers: honeysuckle and clover. Viscous and luxurious on the tongue, it offers bold flavors of dark toffee, lots of oak, and finishes with bitter almond and a touch of raisin. Mellow; hardly any bite when chilled, which makes it highly sippable, almost like Cognac. .Kara Newman, September/2010.
