Description

Elmer T. Lee one of the super star bottlings to come out of the famed Buffalo Trace distillery, along with the likes of George T Stagg, Eagle Rare, Weller etc. A single barrel offering that has to meet Mr Elmer T Lee's legendary lofty standards.

I'd like to give the mashbill for this impressive whiskey, but to looks like Buffalo Trace keeps the lid on such information.  However, bourbon Culture reports that it may contain more rye than it's other illustrious colleagues.

What we do know, is that ETL is aged between 5 and 7 years  either in a wooden or brick warehouse.

From Bourbon Culture, "Palate: The palate is sweet and nicely developed. There’s caramel soaked raisins and canned peaches in a light syrup. There’s also enough rye spice to add some decent complexity. Overall, the sip is sweet, fruity and has a bit of spice but isn’t overly rich.

Finish: The rye spice increases a bit on the tongue and throat after the sip is gone. There’s still a decent amount of sweetness and fruitiness with red fruits, more peaches and a little bit of oak. The finish is extremely balanced though with no one flavor climbing above the other".
