Ohio Division of Liquor Control (OHLQ) Announces Elijah Craig Small Batch Barrel Selection - September 13th

For the second time this year, the Ohio Division of Liquor (OHLQ) has announced the availability of a Small Batch Barrel Selection from Elijah Craig. This new release encompasses six barrels that range in age from eight to eleven years old for sale beginning at 9am on September 13th at select stores (list below).

This small batch comes with a 94 proof (47% alcohol) and offers the following tasting notes:

Nose: Vanilla bean, sweet fruit, and fresh mint
Taste: Woody with accents of spice, smoke, and nutmeg
Finish: Long with a sweet and slightly toasty taste.

As with any single barrel, the flavors should vary slightly from barrel to barrel. The cost will be $29.99 + tax.

The barrels selected are:
  • Barrel 5808117 - 8 years old
  • Barrel 5808090 - 8 years old
  • Barrel 5808109 - 8 years old
  • Barrel 5554649 - 9 years old
  • Barrel 5328470 - 10 years old
  • Barrel 5164816 - 11 years old

Our Take

I reviewed Elijah Craig Small Batch in July and it scored a respectable 71.5 out of 100. For this release, I think it is definitely worth checking out, especially if your local location has an allocation of over 100 bottles. This ensures that if get there at open, you'll most likely be there in time to receive a bottle.
