Coming from the great master distiller Parker Beam. The Elijah Craig 12 year old Bourbon has to be one of the best 12 year old Bourbons on the market! Great balance of sweetness and spice. Also at 94 proof it have just the right amount of kick!">
The brand carries the name of the Rev. Elijah Craig, the man who discovered the method of making true Kentucky Bourbon when he stored his wares in barrels that had been charred in a fire.
Nose: About as complete a Bourbon aroma as you are likely to find...Near miraculous: one of the most beautiful noses found anywhere in the world today.
Taste: A bourbon to keep in the mouth forever...
Comments: Perhaps one of my favorite five or six bourbons and ... perhaps at its best just before bed. Brilliant.">
Sip it straight, chilled, or on the rocks. Enjoy the fruity aroma from the sherry casks combined with the vanilla oaky cooperage notes to round off the flavorful and mature taste of our most exquisite bourbon.
Aroma: PLEASANT FRUIT INFLUENCE,COMBINED WITH VANILLA OAKY NOTES.
Flavor: SMOOTH, RICH MIX OFPX SHERRY ANDBOURBON FLAVORS.

During Prohibition, Old Grand-Dad was produced by a pharmaceutical company, the American Medicinal Spirits Co., and was one of the few distilled spirits permitted to be prescribed as medicine.">
Highlighted by light aromas of dried mango, cocoa, fruit and spiced peach. Flavors of honey, oak and tobacco dance on the pallet. The finish is balanced and dry, with a lingering tingle.">
