Whisky Reviews for Elijah Craig 12-year-old

- One of the better and more balanced Bourbons with complexity and age of 12 years. Very good PLV and optimal drinking strength.
- Especially in the aroma of good - barrel influence is known, very rounded, a lot of vanilla, caramel, wood, dried fruit, spiciness and surprisingly the scent of the stable. The taste adds a little disturbing element of bourbon citrus acid, which fortunately does not overwhelm everything else, but it still impresses slightly. In the mid-long reverberation, fortunately, besides this citrus flavor, there is a bit of rye spiciness that improves the resulting impression. Personally, I would be happy in the final as a not too big fan of bourbon. Unfortunately, at the moment, the question of how long it will be done is no longer produced.
- Great independent Bourbon with neat wood influence for a cheap 30 €, is one of my favorite and lets guess what is still possible at a higher age.
brown sugar, caramel, cinnamon, dark chocolate, dry sawdust, light mint
Strong, full-bodied, little sweetness, rather bitter-tart, burned-on sugar, roasted almonds, leather, tobacco, cloves, pepper
long, dark chocolate, burnt, pepper, tobacco
- Not my bourbon as it is overly sweet
Very, very sweet. candied fruits all over, vanilla, toffee, coconut, then comes the oakness but it is layered behind and does not overpower.
scented pipe tobacco
Sweet then very spicy, herbal. Some herbal liqueur based on gin. Sugar cane sweetness.
Medium to short. sweet and some cinnamon buns.
