Elijah Craig Straight Rye Whiskey

$29.99

Best of Class (Platinum), Sip Awards – #7 Top Whisky, Whisky Advocate 2020 – Double Gold Winner, 2021 SF World Spirits Competition

This fantastic extra-aged Rye Whiskey is the first to carry the name of Elijah Craig. Craig was the first to age his American Whiskey in charred oak barrels to make Bourbon. Now this is the first time Elijah Craig Rye is in New Jersey. There’s so much to like here with his brand new 94-Point, 94 Proof release.

In the glass, Elijah Craig Rye reveals the imbuing spice of rye grains, perfectly balanced with corn for distinct smoothness and character. Notes of dark chocolate with spices and a hint of smoke and a splash of sweet, toasted oak on the lingering finish.

At this incredible price, you can use it for cocktails or to just enjoy it in a glass by itself for some slow sipping.

“Elijah Craig always impresses with value, but until now has been confined to bourbon. This foray into rye whiskey sticks close to Elijah Craig’s bourbon roots by using only the minimum-required 51% rye in its formulation; however, it does achieve a nice departure in flavor. Aromas include butterscotch, caramel-nut clusters, and peppery spice. The spice ramps up on the palate, carried forward by the full body, hearty proof, and mouth-coating texture, as cherry cola, baking chocolate, and darker fruits emerge. Priced a notch below comparable peers, this rye delivers powerful flavors that feel excitingly untamed, and will impress bourbon and rye lovers alike.” -94 Points, Whisky Advocate
