Whisky Reviews for Elijah Craig Small Batch

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.19 points

  1. Buecherwurm scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    Elijah Craig Small Batch WID: 93792
    Abv. 47%, fresh American oak
    Nose: thick portion of vanilla caramel, an intense oak flavor, which I perceive as lighter and clearer in comparison to scotch, I come to Bourbon somehow not so differentiated ran as Scotch
    Taste: again vanilla caramel, together with typical jenever spices, juniper, anise, perhaps also some caraway, the juniper note becomes more present with every sip and the sweetness blends well with the spice
    Finish: Turkish coffee and more juniper
    Conclusion: This juniper note is no longer in my head and I'm still not sure if I like the. I would like to try the 12er in comparison. A rating does not exist because of my lack of experience with Bourbon yet.

  2. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Conclusion: a pleasant warming bourbon. In my opinion, a little bit bent, but it does not spoil it.
    • Nose
      Aroma: fresh pastries, vanilla cream, powdered sugar, cherry in the distance. Good!
    • Taste
      In taste: sugar buns, honey, spicy spices and a lot of tannins.
    • Finish
      Finish: long enough, with a strong influence of oak and shades of sweet pastries, slightly vanilla, honey, pepper, with a cigar flavor.
