I tried… at a bar… didn’t open my bottle… how could I when it’s going for over $600 on secondary?
How was it? It was wonderful! Of course it was, it’s Elmer T Lee, just with a few extra proofs. I tried the ETLC a few years ago at a bar, and it also was lovely, just like the regular ETL.
I feel like it’s silly for me to write up a full review on this one, because it’s pretty much the same as my ETL review from a few years ago. Click for it.
Let’s just say it still has the butterscotch hard candies, dried orange peels, vanilla and baking spices, honeysuckle and spice loaf cake that I have come to love from ETL, but maybe you could argue the mouthfeel was slightly better, the finish slightly longer… although it could have been all in my head.
I scored ETL a 94 a few years ago… at MSRP I’d say this is a 94.5/100, but, given where the secondary market is, you just can’t justify the value for the taste. Looks great on your bar though as a collectible… just like the Amaranth does too.
