Review #1465 – Elijah Craig Small Batch Tippins Selection

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. This one comes to us from Tippins in Ann Arbor. Let’s dive in.

Review #1465 | Bourbon Review #637

Distiller: Heaven Hill

Bottler: Heaven Hill

Brand: Elijah Craig

Selection: Tippins Market

ABV: 47% ABV

Age: NAS


Nose: Toffee, creme brulee. Caramel, nutty sweetness and confectioners sugar. Apple, maple and a dash of youth.

Taste: Medium mouth feel. Total caramel apple. Toffee, honey, pepper, graham cracker, light oak.

Finish: Medium to long in length. Rich, complex. The oak structure is perfect, the caramel apple notes are enticing and elegant, and the brown sugar and toffee are decadent.

Overall: Huge fan of this selection. Excellent selection on behalf of Tippins here. They’ve batted so so for me in the past, but this one is a winner. Excellent Elijah Craig selection here.

Thanks for reading!
