Blanton's Red Label This bourbon 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 is a special Japanese exclusive Blanton's bourbon bottled at 46.5% ABV. The first Blanton's Bourbon from this vast collection was first produced, in 1984 under the guidance of Elmer T. Lee who was the Master distiller at the George T. Stagg Distillery, now know as the infamous Buffalo Trace Distillery. There he worked with Colonel Albert Bacon Blanton who was the president of the Buffalo Trace distillery from 1921-1951. During the time he worked for him, he noticed that when ever 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, the warehouse was built shortly after prohibition and being metal it created a lot of temperature fluctuation because the metal doesn't insulate and it would change how the whisky aged. They are aged 6-8 years, and have a higher rye content. Blanton's is all about quality over quantity which can make them hard to obtain, as the liquor brand can only produce so much at a time. There are eight different stoppers across random bottles of Blanton's, the brand known as the 'whiskey with the horse on top'. They were added in 1999, each stopper has a horse and jockey displaying different positions of a horse race, from standing at the gate, to crossing the finish line, and a letter circled on the lower left side to spell out “B-L-A-N-T-O-N'-S.” These are visible upon purchase, though some customers claim that some letters are harder to find than others. Blanton's 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.
