All about Elmer T. Lee

Elmer T. Lee became the master distiller at the Buffalo Trace Distillery back in 1949. His image decorates every bottle of his namesake Bourbon.

It is a single barrel Bourbon — which means that even thought they follow the same formulas and procedures, bottles from different casks will taste different. 

The main line Elmer T. Lee is a four year old expression (but they have issued longer-aged limited editions here and there). 

It is a premium Bourbon at the lower end of the premium price scale and 45% ABV. It has notes of walnuts and butter toffee with oak and a bit of orange zest. The finish is dry with trailing spices and more woodiness.
