Elijah Craig Small Batch

Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

Tasted
Disclaimer: Bourbon Street Store Pick - Serial Number 5704956 Aged 12-Years Nose: Stands it’s ground with root beer, Reisen candy, tootsie rolls, fruit cake, kettle corn, swisher sweet tobacco, peppercorn medley, and sassafras wood. Palate: Firm wood tannins with a high enough viscosity to coat all angles of your tongue. The root beer notes really transfer to the flavors on the palate and eventually the finish. Finish: Medium to medium long with lingering notes of creamy corn, caramel and spicy root beer barrels. This barrel pick really offers a good amount of spiciness and structure. I get a little more of a hug on the finish with this compared to the regular small batch.
