The reverent Elijah Craig, the first to age this whiskey in charred oak barrels, would be proud of this tradition of quality and dedication to excellence in the bourbon that bears his name, as well as the awards it has earned. The 18-year-old Elijah Craig Single Barrel was distilled and bottled at the Heaven Hill Distilleries in Bardstown, KY. This specific bottle was distilled in 1980! Boy! That’s a long time ago. So long even, that it was bottled in the previous century. Does that count as dusty bourbon?
