A big part of what I’m out to do is find (TheBourbonFinder, get it?😁) bottles at retail so I can share my experience with you–the reader. You won’t often see mention of purported secondary market “value” in my write-ups, or see glory shots of unopened bottles on my social media, and you’ll likely never see things of that nature in my grading or tasting notes. The reasoning there is quite simple: I’m only interested in the whiskey.
Well…the whiskey, and sharing the whiskey experience with you. There–with that out of the way–let’s see what Buffalo Trace has to say about this single barrel expression on their website:
Named after Master Distiller Emeritus Elmer T. Lee, this whiskey is hand selected and bottled to the taste and standards of Elmer T. Lee himself. Perfectly balanced and rich, as declared by the man who knows how great bourbon should taste.
Mashbill #2, single barrel, and 90 proof…there’s obviously a correlation to Blanton’s here. Posting this Elmer T. Lee review in the Summer of 2020 also reminds us of the upcoming USA debut of Blanton’s Gold. Well, enough about the horse-topped bottles. Let’s see what Elmer has in store for us!
