Elmer T. Lee
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Light, fruity, rummy.
Palate: Sweet. Raisins. Vanilla.
Finish: Crisp, dry.
Comment: Light in both flavour and body for a small batch bourbon. Clean, crisp, enjoyable.
Nose: Usually fruity and a little minty, floral character, citrus lingers with the vanilla, rye and sandalwood.
Palate: The flavours unravel in slow motion: soft rye then a slight malty character and then fuller corn.
Finish: Cocoa enriches the final moments that have been sweetened by a light molasses.
Comment: Perhaps the lightest Elmer T Lee of the dozens I have savoured.
