Elmer T. Lee is one of my favorite Bourbons. Easy to drink and enjoy. If your looking for a standard Bourbon that offers premium quality for at a good price, look no further.

Nose: The higher rye mashbill is evident. Saw dusty, cereals, rye, initially. With time left to open you get ginger, citrus, flowers- particularly carnations, vanilla ceylon tea, butterscotch, fudge, and nougat.

Taste: Light bodied Bourbon. Spice, citrus, fudge, light woods, vanilla, sugar cane, soft bitters, and sour notes. Lots of rye as well, the grain is very prominent on the palate as it was on the nose.

Finish: Butterscotch, wood, rye spice, bitter once again. It has a dry finish that I love. It will cause you to salivate and what to experience it again.

Elmer T. Lee certainly does a very good job of translating the smell of the bourbon onto your palate. It's very much a grain driven Bourbon and not much of sweetness is found in it. It's more of a grain, bitters & sours, profile dram. Still good in my book.
