"There's a refreshing tartness to Elijah Craig bourbon, and that flavor profile is at the heart of this selection. Without ice, it's like a room temperature hot toddy, with flavors of lemon, clove, nutmeg, honey, a black tea-like oakiness and slight bitterness. Add ice (recommended) and it reminds of lemon candies melting into iced tea, with more caramel and spice on the palate. "
