This Elijah Craig Single Barrel selected by La Maison du Whisky successfully raises classicism to the ranks of art. To reach such a high level of quality, it has above all taken the secret passages leading to Heaven Hill. Along the way, it has slowly and at length soaked up all its indigenous aromas and flavours to craft the most authentic aromatic and gustatory palette possible. Still not satisfied, after arriving at its destination, it then rushed into the distillery to completely immerse itself in an atmosphere filled with the noble essences of oak.
Profile: the rich initial nose is a subtle blend of citrus fruit, red fruit, honey and spice. Ethereal, it then becomes floral (lilac, peony) and delicately woody (oak). The sharp attack is on the one hand fruity and cereal (maize, rye) and on the other spicy, lemony and vanilla. The silky finish is roasted and lush (coriander, oregano). White peach brings lots of juice to the end of the palate. The retro-nasal olfaction is tertiary (date, mushroom).
