Blanton's Red Label is a premium expression crafted specially for the Japanese Export Market with one unique difference: it is aged an additional two years. It is crafted with Mash Bill #2, a sour mash of corn, malted barley, and extra rye, before maturing in American White Oak casks. The nose on this one is fruity and sweet with bright hints of cherry, mingled with rich caramel, dried oak, honey and vanilla. On the palate you'll find subtle hints of honey, layered with fennel, licorice, ginseng, dry citrus peel, and cinnamon. The finish is silky, and smooth with powerful oak influence, blended with honey, herbs, and all spice.
Blanton's Red Label is best known as "liquid gold"! It was produced in 1984 under the guidance of Elmer T. Lee, Master distiller at the George T. Stagg Distillery, now known as the famous Buffalo Trace Distillery. There he worked with Colonel Albert Bacon Blanton, the President of the Distillery from 1921-1951. During the time he worked for him, he noticed that whenever there were ambassadors, dignitaries, and Colonel Blanton's family and friends, he would always choose a bottle aged at warehouse H at Buffalo Trace. Which is the only metal-clad warehouse at the distillery, built shortly after prohibition. Being metal meant it created a lot of temperature fluctuation because the metal doesn't insulate and would change how the whisky aged. They are aged 6-8 years and have a higher rye content. Blanton's is all about quality and only produces a limited amount, which is what makes them so hard to obtain. In 1999, there were eight different horse stoppers added to the bottles of Blanton's. Each stopper has a letter circled on the lower left side to spell out “B-L-A-N-T-O-N'-S.” After, lined up the stoppers display different positions of a horse race. They are visible upon purchase, even though some letters are hard to find. Blanton assures fans that it produces the same number of each, every year. Blanton's found overseas will be 700 ml, while domestic releases are 750 ml.

Bottle leaked all over the wrapping
The bottle arrived with the top loose as if someone already opened it, making me wonder if it had been refilled with something else. Package leaked everywhere. I've had great success so far with 30 other bottles I've purchased but this was a disaster.
