Was introduced to it in Richmond by a local bartender I got to know. Gave us a taste after noticing I was having a manhattan. Fell in love immediately. Even my wife can sip it. For the money the best value. Sells out in my hope town as soon as it hits the shelves.

I live in Missouri USA so I do not live that far from Buffalo Trace Distillery and have been there many times I am so very familiar with Blanton's and Elmer T as well as the standard Buffalo Trace Bourbon. The Elmer T is so complex and so earthy it defies one's pallet and even though I like others the Elmer T is my treat of treats and I see you are sold out as we are here in the Mid West USA. Elmer T is in a class all its own absolutely fabulous.

When I first nosed this, I was surprised. Sweet and sour, bitter and herbal, light spices. First taste, much the same. I was a little disappointed due to it's initial lack of sweetness, even with the complexity that is immediately present. More savory than sweet. On my third try of the stuff, I added less than a teaspoon into 1 oz of the spirit and waited a few minutes. EUREKA! Sweetness came out, sourness mixed with the spices, and it became the great whiskey I was expecting. I almost always drink my whisky neat but for this drink I am going for a dash of h2o.

I felt lucky to get a bottle. I had high expectations, I was not dissapointed. Immediately: Very high quality, gentle and sweet. lovely nose. sweet gentle arrival and sweet broad, big, rich development, long lingering finish. Only buy this if you like a rather sweet toffee flavored gentle whisky, I do.

I feel like I was reborn as a Komodo Dragon, breathing a light firey aroma of caramel, marshmellow and faint cocoa. Dr. Elmer T. Lee infused smore-like brilliance into a whisky best enjoyed next to a solitary campfire, with the loneliness of the desert wind to keep you company.

Flavors are not burned away, lightly sweet, flavors change with serving temperatures. Room temperature to 0 degree F. Excellent. A toast to your amazing life, Elmer T Lee . Thank you!

Had this at a pub, so not sure how long it was opened. Very easy to drink and has a natural sweetness about it with medium complexity.

Strong right out of the bottle, it's best to let sit for a good 10min and the scent of oak, cinnamon, caramel, & roasted marshmallow fills the air. This bourbon is sweet and finishes smooth. A little afraid to give this such a high review as I'm hoping to continue to be able to purchase at my local store. I've been told it's already a semi-difficult bottle to find.
