Whiskey Wednesday – Oldies, Goodies, and Rare!

by Jonathan Gaby on September 27, 2017

As we wrap up Bourbon History Heritage month, we want to celebrate and pay homage to three of our favorite bourbons on Whiskey Wednesday.

Whiskey Wednesday - Bourbons - Mash Bill 2 - Elmer T Lee. Rock Hill Farms Blanton's

The whiskeys/bourbons we have selected mean a lot to us and we hope that they mean something to you as well. You’ll have to come in and share your stories associated with these bourbons this evening. Join us for 1/2 ounce pours from 5-8pm tonight (September 27th).

Elmer T Lee.
For us at Capital Cellars, we are always fortunate to have had a great and close relationship with Elmer T. Lee. Mr. Lee would often come to our store for lunch and would always have a gold paint pen on hand to sign bottles of his signature single barrel bourbon.
One of my (Jonathan Gaby’s) prized possessions is a signed bottle of Elmer T. Lee.
“The nose brings notes of clove, vanilla, and old leather. The flavor balances fruit, honey and vanilla with a light spiciness. A long and warm finish.” – Buffalo Trace Distillery
Rock Hill Farms
“Seductive aromatic notes of toasted walnut, dried red fruits, spice, cocoa and marshmallow. Flavors of dark chocolate, chocolate covered almond, coffee, tobacco and dark caramel. The finish is smooth, silky, toffee sweet and honeyed.” – Sazerac
A great favorite of ours is Blanton’s single barrel. Who can forget the iconic horse figurine atop the cork and the unique bottle? The horses are in different poses and if you collect them all, the horse looks like it’s in a race! But let’s forget the bottle and cork, let’s talk about the bourbon!
“A deep, satisfying nose of nutmeg and spices. Powerful dry vanilla notes in harmony with hints of honey amid strong caramel and corn. A medium finish composed of returning corn and nutmeg flavors.” – Buffalo Trace Distillery
