Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon. Image courtesy Heaven Hill.This is the no-age-statement version of Elijah Craig Small Batch released in January, 2016, and is made with whiskies between 8-12 years old. The nose is smooth with notes of caramel, honey, vanilla, oak, a hint of molasses, brown sugar, and cocoa beans. The taste is spicy with black pepper and cinnamon, but is balanced well by honey, vanilla, caramel, and fudge underneath. The taste is medium-length with fading spices and touches of vanilla, caramel, and oak. (January, 2016)
