Elijah Craig Straight Rye
|Region||United States, Kentucky|
The first extra-aged Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey to join Elijah Craig's award-winning family of Bourbons. A unique combination of spicy rye grains and sweet corn, coupled with a steadfast attention to detail, give Elijah Craig Straight Rye the perfect balance of flavor and smoothness. Tasting Notes: Medium chestnut. Aromas of dark chocolate with spices and a hint of smoke. On the palate, rich baking spices and honey backed up with smooth oak influence. A long and lingering finish.
The complex aromas suggest red fruit, vanilla and allspice. The first sips open with oak, leading to hints of dried cherry and cranberry midpalate. That fruit note extends into the elongated, mouthwatering finish, backed by cinnamon and cayenne heat.
