Best of Class (Platinum) Sip Awards – #7 Top Whisky, Whisky Advocate 2020
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 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.
This is one of the rare, prized barrels I was able to snag on my January trip to Kentucky. It’s a 78% corn, 10% rye, and 12% malted barley mashbill that blends seamlessly together. Notes of vanilla & cinnamon, and coffee on the nose with freshly baked bread, brown butter, fig and dark chocolate on the palate with a creamy toffee mid-palate and a smooth and delicious finish that lasts for a while. Watch out though… you never feel the heat!
These days, I find myself going for more Rye than ever before. Towards the very top of the list for me is the Rye that father & son Master Distillers, Jimmy and Eddie Russell have been cooking up at Wild Turkey. Together, those two have been at Wild Turkey in excess of 100 years. Like all of Wild Turkey’s rye whiskeys, it’s made from their single-rye mashbill. It’s a 6-year, 90 Proof Rye that just seems to go above and beyond some of the more simpler ones I’ve had. Kinda like a hybrid between a high Rye Bourbon and a traditional Rye. It has a bold expression of caramel, vanilla, lemon zest and black pepper and is very smooth and well built. A great lingering spice on the finish.
