Elijah Craig Straight Rye Whiskey (750 mL)

Surprisingly sweet; kettle corn and caramel sweetness originate first. A mix of allspice, nutmeg, and rye grain follows. The sweetness remains though and begins to ramp up into the finish. Light bodied and mild in its intensity overall. A crescendo of sweetness introduces vanilla and butterscotch, which is quickly met with a hit of lasting rye spice. The finish delivers the right level of intensity, which is lacking in the nose and palate, making it the highlight of the sip.  

Is Elijah Craig a rye bourbon?
This extraordinary extra-aged Rye Whiskey is the first to carry the name of Elijah Craig: the entrepreneur and distiller who is credited with being the first to age his American Whiskey in charred oak barrels to make Bourbon Kentucky.

Is Elijah Craig Rye hard to find?
One of the Best Bourbon Makers in America Just Released Its First Rye Whiskey. Heaven Hill Distillery's Elijah Craig line first venture outside of bourbon will be an affordable, weirdly hard-to-find rye whiskey. Elijah Craig, the brand behind some of the best bourbons in America, now makes rye whiskey, too.

Elijah Craig Rye is a premium and super-premium brand of bourbon whiskey produced in Kentucky by Heaven Hill Distilleries. The brand is sold as a straight bourbon, typically in 750 mL glass bottles.  

Aged 8 to 12 Years, Elijah Craig Straight Rye Whiskey is 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.

While the distillation process for Straight Rye is similar to our Small Batch Bourbon, the difference lies in the mashbill. It’s 51% rye grain instead of corn: the legal requirement for this style of American Whiskey.

“On the palate, it’s like butter, drenching down the jawline and hitting the tongue with a cadre of spice, from cinnamon to black pepper.” - FRED MINNICK
