Named after the man credited with inventing the charring process, the Baptist minister Elijah Craig. Little is known for sure about this semi-legendary figure who, along with 177 of his neighbours, was found guilty of distilling without a license on 26th September 1798. The reverend was fined $140.
A true single barrel bottling, so expect some variation from batch to batch.

First introduced in 1992, stocks of Elijah Craig 18 Year Old Single Barrel ran dry in 2012 but recovered enough to allow the 18 year old statement to be returned in October 2015.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/04/2012


(barrelled 18-Apr-1990, barrel No. 8966)


Spicy nutty nose - almost reminiscent of peanut butter with vanilla oak.


Slightly sweet yet at the same time dry with oaky corn balanced by vanilla and sweet maple. Faint enlivening Worcestershire sauce spice.


Long, oaky maple finish with lingering spice.
