Distribution of ratings for this:
- Brand: Elijah Craig
- Type: American
- ABV: 47%
Legs: Noticeably thinner than a 40% whisky and very slow.
Nose: Very sweet, some varnish in the background, treacle, butterscotch, mango, vanilla. With some air and time cloves start to make a noticeable appearance in the bouquet.
Taste: With water – creamy sweet arrival very much like the nose but with the addition of mouth-watering fruity acidity after the sweet arrival. Spicy – some cinnamon? Cloves!
Finish: lingering sweet and sour, the fruity sourness lingers the longest, cloves.
From a selection of bourbon samples from Drinks by the Dram this is the one that left the deepest impression. I wouldn't describe it as complex in comparison to my developing taste in single malt whisky but it is a very pleasant after dinner bourbon.
