Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon Barrel Selection

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon

Legend has it that Elijah Craig discovered the method of producing true Kentucky Bourbon when the warehouse he stored his barrels in caught on fire and charred the barrels. Whether or not that is true, there is no doubt that he discovered a way to make a bourbon loved throughout Kentucky and the United States.

Elijah Craig Small Batch premium is an award-winning, true small batch bourbon. Payless Liquors, along with Joe and Grady from The Grady and Big Joe Show, had the opportunity to select a barrel of Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon. We are very excited for this barrel selection! Here are more details on what you can expect with our Elijah Craig Small Batch Barrel selection.

Nose:  Dried orange and apricot zest with notes of custard and soft spiced wood that give a slight alcohol bite to the front of the nose.

Taste:  Up front flavors of dried cherries and ripe apples mixed with soft maple, and burnt brown sugar. Sweet soft char wood notes enter quickly in the middle and thru the end, bringing with it the slightest hint of vanilla, mixed with ever-growing spice notes that present strongly on the finish. The taste ends with just a dash of white pepper and more sweet wood char.

Finish: A medium finish with an oily texture allows its flavors to linger longer than most. Spice and sweetened wood flavors last to the end. Mostly infused with wood and fruit, yet enough subtle sweetness that keeps calling the glass back to your lips for yet another taste.

Overall:  This is a very nice, unique pour that you hope to get when you purchase a single barrel bourbon. It presents with the combination of the healthy fruits and sassy spice that would draw Grady’s interest time and time again, yet has the right amount of decadent sweetness that will have Joe holding a bottle like Whinney the Pooh holds on to his honey.

Bring Out The Irish In You

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Every year on March 17th, the Irish and Irish at heart come together to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. What originally started as a Roman Catholic feast day to honor the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating the Irish culture. People from all over the world unite with parades, dancing, drinking, and of course, green!

Whether you plan on visiting your local Irish pub or staying at home, green and Irish traditional drinks are a must! From Guinness to Irish Whiskey and cocktails, there are plenty of options for even the choosiest of drinkers. One of our favorites is a classic Irish Martini. 

It’s a simple version of a martini, with the perfect St. Paddy’s Day twist. Start with these ingredients:

  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
  • 1/2 ounce Irish whiskey
  • Lemon twist for garnish

First, pour the Irish whiskey into a chilled cocktail glass. Swirl the whiskey around the glass to coat the inside then dump the excess whiskey. You don’t want any other flavors in your glass affecting the taste of your cocktail! Pour the vodka and dry vermouth into a cocktail shaker half-filled with cracked ice, then shake well. Strain the liquid into the rinsed glass and garnish with a lemon.

When making a drink as naked as this, it is important to use premium cocktails. The lack of juices and heavily flavored ingredients would not mask the poor quality taste of cheap liquor. Lucky for you, Payless has you covered!
