100 Year Tribute is a commemorative bottling honoring what would have been the 100th birthday of Elmer T. Lee, former master distiller emeritus for Buffalo Trace Distillery. This 100 Year Tribute is still a single barrel bourbon and is made using the same mash bill and age as its standard Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon, but it is bottled at 100 proof rather than 90 proof. Proceeds from this limited edition bottling will go to the Frankfort VFW Post 4075 where Lee was a member until his death in 2013.
*This version of the bourbon is 100 proof, and shares its mash recipe with such stalwarts as Blanton’s, Rock Hill Farms, Ancient Age, and Hancock’s Reserve. Elmer T. Lee bourbon features an appearance of golden amber. It’s aroma is that of strong vanilla and sweet caramel which are followed by light berries, apricot, and peaches. There is a bit of oak on the tail end.
