Color: Citrus Gold
Nose: A very well balanced nose. floral, honey, vanilla bean, caramel, nuts, dark fruits, and toasted oak.
Taste: Salted caramel, vanilla, candied fruits, rye spice, toasted oak.
Finish: Medium in length. Notes of salted caramel, rye spice and toasted oak linger.
Conclusion: There is a lot of depth to be found in Elijah Craig Small Batch bourbon. The age really expresses itself as there is heavy oak presence throughout the nose, taste, and finish. The flavors compliment each other well and the 94 proof makes for a nice, warming finish. At $20-30 it's a great bang for the buck!
My Rating: B+ (Very Good)
