    Passing of Elmer T. Lee

    Couldn't find this on the board. If this is not the right forum please feel free to move. I saw one mention of it on the board but no specific thread.

    Very sad news indeed. Thoughts and prayers for the man, his friends and his family. Can't wait to get off work so that I can properly honor him myself. RIP Mr. Lee.

    I'll have a generous pour of Elmer's namesake SB in his honor in just a few moments. A toast to a life well-lived and a celebration of his many accomplishments in the world of Bourbon. We'll all miss him for his ever-present good humor and all his expertise at The Buffalo. Go ahead of us, Elmer and prepare the next great offering for all of us in the big distillery that awaits.

    We are heading to BT thursday for a barrel selection, I would imagine the mood will be quite somber.

    A legend in the business. RIP
