    Re: Passing of Elmer T. Lee

    Funny thing. When you have time you think it lasts forever. I knew Elmer made every Tuesday trips to the distillery to hang out, pick barrels, make small talk, but I never found myself at BT on a Tuesday morning. I kept thinking next time - I'll swing by and say hello. Looks like I'll have to wait a little longer. By all accounts a good man and a pioneer in the industry. Godspeed and farewell - - May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. -- I enjoyed a drink in his name tonight.

    Re: Passing of Elmer T. Lee

    Some say whiskey don't keep. Well, I do keep special bottles, and save them for needed occasions.

    I've been keeping in the bunker a ETL 15yr single barrel that a member was kind enough to trade me some time ago.

    Tonight, no finer a day to open it to honor a man who gave so much to the industry.

    It's quite a fine pour. Might leave a little in the glass in case the man himself would like to give a visit.

    Thank you Elmer.

    That was my thinking as well. While I have numerous barrel selected retailer ETLs bunkered, I went out and picked up a standard bottle for this evening. Thank you Mr. Lee for everything you did.

    Was told the news as I walked into work today. Sad to hear it but he certainly did have a good run.

    Mr. Lee:

    May your glass be ever full.
    May the roof over your head be always strong.
    And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.
