The Schtick: This is a single barrel selection from Heaven Hill by a store/society electing to pick something from the Elijah Craig line of bottlings. Let’s dive in.

Review #1459 | Bourbon Review #635

Distiller: Heaven Hill

Bottler: Heaven Hill

Brand: Elijah Craig

Selection: Cedar Hill Beaverton

ABV: 47% ABV

Age: NAS


Nose: Sweet toffee, cocoa, waffle cone, tobacco and pepper. Rich and sweet.

Taste: Thin to medium mouth feel. Heat in check, nice sweetness. Oak, toffee, pepper, tobacco.

Finish: Long, sweet and rich. Pepper, tobacco, toffee.

Overall: Really nice EC selection here. I’m very much a fan since they dropped the 12yr age statement and elected to do single barrels, and this continues to please. Nice work…Beavertown.
