Elijah Craig Small Batch is part of the Heaven Hill line of bourbons that includes Evan Williams, Larceny, Henry McKenna, Parker’s Heritage, and Old Fitzgerald. I won’t go into the history of Elijah Craig, but I can tell you that “Small Batch” is a vague term with no regulated number of barrels attached to it. Small batch doesn’t make a whiskey better or worse, it just exists as marketing lingo to vaguely describe how a whiskey was made.
This review specifically covers the Elijah Craig Montgomery County DLC 8 Year single barrel pick with serial #5661152. While the label doesn’t state the age, I wrote down the details so I wouldn’t forget because they also were selling a 9-year single barrel pick that I also purchased. This Elijah Craig store pick, like all Elijah Craig store picks, still has “Small Batch” on the bottle because it’s easier to use the same bottle and put a unique label on it. Anyways, onto this Elijah Craig Montgomery County DLC 8 Year Single Barrel review to see if this single barrel stands out from the norm.
