If there were ever a Bourbon that represents the pinnacle for the craft, this is that bottle. Our 23-year-old is the standard for Single Barrel Bourbons, and one of the most rare Bourbons available in the world. The lower floors of our rickhouses provide slower, gentler aging. There, our Master Distillers sample barrels for multi-layered taste and aroma profiles. Among their findings, they select those that meet their strict nosing and taste criteria to become Elijah Craig 23-Year-Old Single Barrel. This unique Bourbon has endured more than ninety Kentucky seasons, creating a distinctive aroma and taste that's definitely worth the wait.
Color: Rich, tawny brown.
Taste: Toasted honey, cocoa and warm, sweet pipe tobacco.
Nose: Buttered popcorn, with light citrus notes.
Finish: Long, dry and satisfying with a sprig of mint.
This limited-edition bottling of rare extra-aged Bourbons becomes more concentrated and rich when allowed to open up in the glass: look for coconut, vanilla, oak and a dry finish accented with cocoa and leather. Just a splash of branchwater, and this is a sipper to savor.
