Ohio Liquor Control Announces Elijah Craig Small Batch Barrel Selection

The Ohio Department of Commerce - Division of Liquor Control has announced a partnership with Heaven Hill Distillery to select 15 select barrels of Elijah Craig that have been aged from 8 to 12 years. The small batch bottles will be available beginning at 9am on Friday, February 8th at the below locations. Each store will receive 80 bottles (on average) and will retail for $27.99 + tax. The small batch is 94 proof and features a woody taste with accents of spice, smoke, and nutmeg.

In our opinion, this is another example of the Division of Liquor Control limiting the supply of quality spirits to consumers. Traditionally, independent stores will get their own barrel picks based on demand by the public. This ensures competition and quality because if a store keeps getting bad barrel picks, people will stop buying them. In Ohio, there is no accountability to demand or quality.

However, if you do end up purchasing a bottle of the Elijah Craig Small Batch, drop a note in the comments with your thoughts.
