Bottoms Up #15 – Elmer T. Lee Bourbon

This week on Bottoms Up we take a closer look at a single barrel bourbon named after a living legend. Elmer T. Lee. Named after Master Distiller Emeritus Elmer T. Lee, this 90 proof bourbon put out by the Buffalo Trace Distillery is a balanced, rich bourbon good for sipping or in a cocktail. And use it in a cocktail we did, as Ginny gives her muddler a workout and makes a Blackberry Bourbon Fizz.  This one is guaranteed to make you thirsty.

Elmer T. Lee Bourbon
(From the official 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.

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