One of the most storied names in bourbon is once again innovating for a brand new release. Heaven Hill is expanding the Elijah Craig line with this new release, named for the unique aging process used. Toasted Barrel begins with fully matured Small Batch bourbon, which is then dumped and re-entered at barrel proof into a second, custom toasted new oak barrel. The special barrels were designed in partnership with Independent Stave Company and are made with 18-month air-dried oak and the finished barrel is toasted and then flash-charred. Bottled at 94 proof, it's a great variant on an iconic bourbon that is a permanent line extension for the brand and slated to launch next month.
