Elijah Craig Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey (47%)

Launched by Heaven Hill in the USA in early 2020, Elijah Craig Rye is made with a traditional mash bill of 51% rye, 35% corn and 14% malted barley. It's the same 'barely legal' recipe they use for whiskeys like Pikesville and Rittenhouse Rye, so called because it contains the bare minimum amount of rye required by law. Because the dominant secondary grain is corn, the flavour profile is reported to be quite similar to what might be expected from a Bourbon - which hooks into rye's popular resurgence. Hardcore Bourbon drinkers are being won over by whiskeys like this. Extra aging remains a tenet of the Elijah Craig portfolio, and this is no exception. Expect a spicy sharpness from the rye balanced by sweetness from the corn. Llike the rest of the range, it comes packaged in the brand's iconic bottle shape. 47% Alc./Vol.
