Honouring the father of Single Barrels. RIP (1919 - 2013). 
 
The Buffalo Trace Distillery which is located in Frankfort, Kentucky has been making Bourbon Whiskey for over 200 years. In all these years they've never stopped producing Whiskey - not even in the days of Prohibition, when they were allowed to produce "medicinal" Whiskey, khm. In the past decade Buffalo Trace has won more awards than any other distillery in the World, including seven "Distillery of the Year" titles.
 
The Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon is named after Buffalo Trace master distiller Elmer T. Lee, a WWII veteran and the father of single barrel bottling. Lee had worked at the distillery for over 4 decades and continued selecting the barrels even after retirement. He’s recently passed away, but left behind a legacy worth retelling.  
 
Lee’s single barrel Bourbon is bottled from an individual ageing barrel, not from the blend of many. It has no age statement, but it is assumed the average age is 9-14 years.  Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon has won Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2013, and countless others over the years.

Another bottle that is over priced at most retailers in new york. When I can find it at a decent price I try to pick up as many bottles as they will sell me. I always keep a bottle in my liquor cabinet.

Favorite Bourbon by far

Allen,
My favorite stand by bourbon until it became hard to find. The perfect baseline, balancing all things that make bourbon what it is: spicy but not too long an afterburn; caramel sweetness, but not too much; from nose to tongue to throat, it's a classic bourbon experience from beginning to end.

Antti,
It is an outstanding, rich, Straight Bourbon Whiskey with a sweet birth & a warm & balanced life, that leads to a long & warming death!

Slightly more bight than Colonel Taylor, not as flavorful as Buffalo Trace. Still a solid pour.

Great everyday sipper if you could get it everyday.

This is the bourbon that all other bourbons should be judged by. Not fancy--just perfectly bourbon. Wish it was more widely available.

Another top notch bang for your buck. Full of flavor with a nice smooth sweet ending. Along with Eagle Rare this should be in your pantry.

Crispin,
Simply, the smoothest bourbon I’ve ever tasted! The notes of Honey are not overdone, there’s a great citrus hint on the lingering finish. My favorite, by a long stretch.
