    Passing of Elmer T. Lee

    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.

    I had a pour of this terrific 15 year ETL last night as well on account of this sad news. Too bad this 15 year was a one-off limited release. Amazing stuff. RIP Mr. Lee.

    This goes along with Fishnbowl's post Joe, ACDetroit and I were all at the Barrel rolling contest when Tony says there is Elmer. I turn my head to the left and standing 2 feet behind us is Elmer and a friend. He was gracious enough to let us take pictures as you can see. ( I took the pictures) I hope the angels take as good of care of Elmer as they did his bourbon.

    I had hoped this day would never come. Elmer was one of my main men.

    Truly a legend and a genuinely nice man by all accounts. I really enjoyed the thought of him visiting the distillery weekly to personally select the whiskey that bears his name.

    Elmer T. was the real deal. A true Kentucky gentleman who loved his work, cared for his friends, and lived life to the fullest, always wearing that signature smile.
