I am a newbie here and admittedly new to bourbon hyperbole but as of late I've tried a dozen or so of the highly regarded bourbons discussed on this site. The one bourbon I purchased recently that didn't match all the reviews and profiles I read was the Elmer T. Lee single barrel. My bottle has a very pronounced ash/graphite/charcoal/char flavor to it on the finish that is very distracting. Given that this is single barrel stuff I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed this in the recent bottlings. I was really happy to find this product in my local store after what I had read but I have to say relative to all the other bourbons I've acquired it really has a strong and somewhat unpleasant finish. Is this normal?
