ELMER T. LEE SINGLE BARREL

Named after Master Distiller Emeritus Elmer T. Lee, this whiskey is hand selected and bottled to the taste and standards which were set forth by  Elmer T. Lee himself.  Perfectly balanced and rich, as declared by the man who knew how great bourbon should taste.

TASTING NOTES

The nose brings notes of clove, vanilla, and old leather. The flavor balances fruit, honey and vanilla with a light spiciness. A long and warm finish.

REVIEWS

Wine Enthusiast rating: 91

“An elegant, complex whiskey. The flavors are nice and tight.”
