Elijah Craig 12 yr. – A small batch Kentucky straight bourbon made from limestone filtered water and a special yeast recipe.  In their own words “one of the world’s greatest bourbons”.  Please read on to see our perspective.

(94 proof) – no specific bottle numbers.

$25 for 750ml – and was received as a gift.

Tasting was done on the rocks as our usual way.

Rater Comments
Jason I taste pepper and reminds me of buying peppered beef jerky.  Why? Well, when you eat it you taste pepper and for me when I drink Elijah Craig 12 year bourbon I taste pepper. Not a bad bourbon at all but I don't feel it is one of the greats either.
Tripp A high proof drink with flavors of pepper, clove and earth but no sweet.  This is very smooth and drinkable but not my taste preference.  I would recommend this highly to our fans who like the negative side of our taste scale… this will be a mixer for me.
