    The Kentucky Bourbon Trail... Pt 2

    Written by

    On day 2 of my Kentucky Bourbon Trail  I made it to 4 more working distilleries, Woodford Reserve, Four Roses, Wild Turkey and Buffalo Trace and on day 3, just before I left, I visited a closed one; Sitizel-Weller. Favorites were Woodford Reserve and Four Roses (neither had a bottling hall) but the obligatory chocolate bourbon balls still made frequent apprearances.

    Elmer T Lee Single Barrel

    Another American whiskey named after a person.  Come on USA....it's not as if as all scotch is all named Glen Something or other is it?  I was immediately hit by the nose on this one, cooked peaches, corn syrup and bubblegum.  The taste is very rich, dry and has some cocoa and fruit notes.  A little oak spice comes through at the end, but this one is all about the spirit not the cask.
