Elijah Craig 23-Year is crafted using local Kentucky corn and grains, which are milled using limestone-rich spring water and then fermented and distilled to perfection. Master distillers patiently await each batch as charred oak barrels are left aging in small batches. As such, the 23-Year is one of the most complex barrel bourbons your taste buds will ever experience. Twenty-three years is a long time for a bourbon to age, so barrel selection is of the utmost importance. Barrels left to age in extreme temperatures can become too tannic or woody, so Elijah Craig 23-Year-Old Single Barrel is left in more moderate conditions, being carefully observed while the magic happens. The result is a complex whiskey with a delicate balance between barrel and distillate, which is a treat for any connoisseur.
