Elijah Craig 18 Year Bourbon is an eighteen-year-old bourbon that was named in honor of master distiller Elijah Craig. This limited-edition bourbon was first released in 1994 and is still produced at the Heaven Hill Distillery. This bourbon is crafted from a mash bill of 78% corn,12% malted barley, and 10%. This splendid bourbon is rich and complex with prominent notes of strong leather, and oak mingled with spiced vanilla. On the palate, you'll find undertones of mint, layered with chocolate. The finish is long and lingering with pleasant bursts of honey, toasted wood, and char.
Elijah Craig 21 Year Bourbon is part of a series of bourbons named after the reverend Elijah Craig. He was a well-renowned master distiller, baptist preacher, entrepreneur, and educator. In 1789, there was a fire that accidentally charred some barrels. This accident changed the whisky inside immensely improving its flavor. Right then and there, he knew he discovered something impressive and became "The father of bourbon" that we now know today. Over the years, he improved his barrel charring accident, into a more refined blend that we still enjoy 250 years later. The unique spirit is bottled solely from the contents of one barrel that have been aged for eighteen years and is a must for any bourbon connoisseur. It is bottled at the infamous Heaven hill distillery which is still family-owned by the Shapira Family today. Heaven hill distillery is located in Bardstown, Kentucky, and produces several great brands such as Henry McKenna, Larceny bourbon, Evan Williams, and Ritten House.
