The first extra-aged Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey to join Elijah Craig’s award-winning family of Bourbons. A unique combination of spicy rye grains and sweet corn, coupled with a steadfast attention to detail, give Elijah Craig Straight Rye the perfect balance of flavor and smoothness.
THE RYE MASHBILL
While the distillation process for Straight Rye is similar to Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon, the difference lies in the mashbill. It’s 51% rye grain instead of corn: the legal requirement for this style of American Whiskey.
“On the palate, it’s like butter, drenching down the jawline and hitting the tongue with a cadre of spice, from cinnamon to black pepper.”
Dark chocolate with spices
and a hint of smoke
Rich baking spices and honey backed up
with smooth oak influence
Long and lingering
