There's not a lot of information about this bourbon online other than some bourbon people raving about its great quality-to-price ratio. Hey, I'm a sucker for a good bargain, so when I got the chance to get my hands on this "Kentucky-only" bottling, I jumped at the chance. Heaven Hill 6 Year Old uses the same 78/10/12 (corn, rye, malted barley) mash bill as Elijah Craig Small Batch.

Neat from a Libby Kentucky Bourbon Glass

  • Nose: a bit of acetone, caramel, vanilla, corn oil, banana, a faint aroma of something green and vegetal
  • Palate: light bodied, sweet icing sugar, banana, vanilla, caramel, floral notes
  • Finish: on the short side, a bit sharp, vanilla frosting, banana, some oak spice. This is a fairly straightforward offering. It won’t change your perception of bourbon, but it is a fine multipurpose whiskey. If this truly is less than $15 in Kentucky, it’s a can’t miss proposition. I'm not including price in the evaluation criteria since I can't buy this on the regular and I can neither confirm not deny the rumours about this being a Kentucky exclusive. That said, this is an average entry-level bourbon to my palate in the same vein as Jim Beam White Label, albeit bottled at a higher proof. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this again but I wouldn't stockpile it either.
