-No Age Statement, rumored 7-10 years old
-Buffalo Trace Mash Bill #2
Nose: Initial notes of citrus are followed by sweet aromas of maple, honey and vanilla. This balanced elegantly by a subtle spice and toasted oak.
Taste: Rich and deep. The mouthfeel is extremely chewy. Very sweet with vanilla, caramel, and toffee, but balanced with a gentle mix of rye spice, black pepper, and cinnamon.
Finish: Moderate in length. Smooth, with a sweet and spicy dryness.
Conclusion: This is honestly a bourbon unlike any other. When compared to other bourbons from Buffalo Trace Mashbill #2- Blantons, Rock Hill Farms, Hancocks Reserve- this is by far my favorite. Elmer T Lee single barrel has a lot of character without the rough edges. It's a delicious bourbon that is also a great value.
My Rating: A (Great)
