Elijah Craig 12 year old K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #8434 Bourbon 750ml (ships as a 1.5L)

SKU #1159465

This barrel is from the first batch of the final lot of Elijah Craig Single Barrel, which has been discontinued. It turned out a reasonable 15 cases. It's a wonderful contrast to cask #8446 and showing a totally different profile. Here we have all that vanilla that you'd expect, but it's not artificial at all. It feels as though you'd just grated fresh Tahitian vanilla bean into a bowl of Seville orange peels. This gives way to a lovely savory oak spice, which has a definite underbrush note. We're walking in the forest now. The savory forest notes almost gives a sense of salinity, which translates well on the palate. Salt water taffy and more oak spice. This has that pepper we missed in #8446. It's quite a bit drier as well, but the oak does not become harsh or bitter, it's rather warming and inviting.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
