The 20-year-old Elijah Craig Single Barrel was released by Heaven Hill in 2012 to replace the younger 18-year-old bottling. Distilled in 1991, this is one of the oldest Elijah Craig bourbons available. A special one barrel bottling of Elijah Craig Single Barrel 20 Years Old, released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival, won Whisky Advocate’s American Whiskey of the Year in 2011. The regular 2012 bottling is made from the same distillate, and was released in limited quantities only. Please note: there is a tiny dent on this bottle, just above the fill level.
