You’ve got to love any guy named Elmer. The name just screams someone, who would know what great whiskey tastes like, and so it was no surprise when we came across Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Whiskey. This particular label comes with a clover, vanilla, and old leather nose and a flavor balance of fruit, honey and vanilla with some spiciness, plus a long and warm finish.
Furthermore, Elmer T isn’t just talk. It has won the 2013 Silver Medal at the Los Angeles International Wine and Spirits Competition as well as this year’s Gold Medal at San Francisco World Spirits Competition. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us!
