Elijah Craig 12 YO Small Batch Bourbon, 47 %

Just a quick little review today. Real life ™ is very busy, putting a bit of pressure on my blogging time. But I shall persevere!

You can pick up a bottle of the Elijah Craig 12 YO Small Batch Bourbon online at around GBP 37.

Nose: Vanilla, dried coconut flakes, strawberries, and toasted oak. Softly spicy. Hints of shoe polish and resin. Fancy leather shoes – brand new.

Taste: Rich and full bodied. Spicy honey, dark caramel, an vanilla. I also find mild perfume notes – herbal and green with a slight bitter touch..

Finish: Medium long finish. More bitter now. Bitter oranges, toasted oak, perfume and dark chocolate.

Comments: A fine, old bourbon, but a touch too perfumy for me.

Score (84/100)
