The next time you want a winter warmer with depth and nuanced flavor, reach for some of the good stuff — a great whiskey to add to your home bar ought to do the trick, especially when it’s made by Elijah Craig. To get more specific, the Elijah Craig Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey is just the ticket, a whiskey made the right way with both innovation and respect for old-school quality in mind.
Rye whiskey makes a mean Old Fashioned and offers plenty of depth when sipped neat or on the rocks, and when it comes the Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey, the process and finished product is certainly to be respected (and enjoyed, at that).
It goes through an extra-aged process that adds layers of depth to your whiskey cabinet or home bar, given that this particular blend uses larger amounts of corn versus going heavy on the rye — Elijah Craig says the resulting whiskey features a “spicy sharpness,” plus some sweetness from the use of corn. Taken all at once, it’s the finest whiskey you can buy once it launches early next year in select markets (including North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Oregon).
