Elijah craig 12 year Old

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I found Elijah Craig 12 year 47 ABV in my local shop for 40USD. Is this particular bourbon worth the price? 

Thanks. 

Im a big scotch fan but starting to get into bourbons. That’s why such a stupid question :)

If you like a Bourbon that's full-bodied (somewhat oaky some might say), yet nicely balanced with sweetness and some baking spices; then I'd say definitely pick it up.    The 12-year age statement has been gone from bottles on US shelves for a couple years, so a "slightly dusty" one that still has 12-years on the label is a nice find.      ...And, $40 isn't a bad price at all.

Nice catch. Like Rich said, the 12 yr Elijah craig has been vacant from US shelves for a while and was a favorite among many on here. It is an excellent example of a mature, well aged bourbon that has a classic profile.  If you enjoy that bottle, chances are, you will be curious about other expressions. Enjoy it!

I'm jealous...lol. EC12 was a favorite of mine. I'm not a fan of the no age statement stuff.

EC12 is a very solid bourbon.  As mentioned, it can be a little oaky yet still enjoyable.  I would certainly pick one up.

What brands of bourbon do you typically find on the shelf in Latvia?

We don’t have many brands available. Only those mainstream. 

Jim beam (I quite like signature craft 12Y and booker’s 7Y) 

Makers Mark

Four Roses ( few weeks ago I bought four roses limited edition single barrel 2013 63 abv) 

Bulleit

Hudson Baby

Woodford Reserve 

Eagle Rare 10Y 

of course there are few more but there’s are the ones I have tried.
