Elijah Craig 12 Years Old 70cl 47°

Distillery : Heaven Hill Distilleries / Country : United States / Reference: : 20856

This magnificent Straight Bourbon whiskey of the Heaven Hill distillery results from a combination of several new oak casks (up to 70 casks). 

Rich and surprising with its spicy and floral notes, it has been named in honor of a Baptist preacher, Reverend Elijah Craig, who has been the first one to mature his whiskey in charred new oak casks. Indeed, he is said to have discovered this process, hallmark of Kentucky Bourbon whiskey, when storing his goods in burnt wood barrels after a fire.

Elijah Craig is a Bourbon widely acclaimed by critics and received many awards at various international events, such as a Double Gold Medal at the WSWA Spirits Tasting Competition 2010.
