Elmer T. Lee 90th Birthday Edition

Just unveiled: Elmer T. Lee 90th Birthday Edition bourbon.

Kind of an emotional time. Sorry about the picture quality, but that's a special Elmer commemorative bottle of Maker's in the middle, and the 90th Birthday edition on the right.

The picture below is master distillers at the party: left to right, front row: Harlen Wheatley, Buffalo Trace; Jimmy Russell, Wild Turkey; Elmer T. Lee; Gary Gayheart, Buffalo Trace; and Parker Beam, Heaven Hill. Back row: Craig Beam, Heaven Hill; Greg Davis, Tom Moore; Kevin Smith, Maker's Mark; and Jim Rutledge, Four Roses. Pretty impressive.

How bout a review of the Old Weller lines. The 107 antique available in PA is damn nice for the price Bobo.

Were there different bottles made for the 90th? I just purchased the one on the far left but have not seen the others with the exception of the picture on this blog.

The other two were limited, private bottlings; the Maker's was a one-off, just for Elmer; the Elmer bottling on the right was for attendees (many of which were opened and consumed that night). We got a cloth cap, too.
