Blanton's Straight From The Barrel is easily one of the Greatest bourbons. It is a Cask strength expression, making it one of the highest alcohol by volume. Its created 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 bold and savory, with dominant hints of smoke mingled with earthy undertones of walnuts, and hazelnut with a warm buttery mouthfeel. On the palate, you'll find subtle hints of honey, rye, and spices. The finish is strong and bold with a delicate nuisance of chocolatey espresso, honey, and spice.
Blanton's Straight From The Barrel 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.

Phenomenal customer service
Despite being meticulously packed, one of my bottles of Blanton’s Straight from the Barrel had leaked 2-3 oz though the cork and seal. Within minutes, Bottle Buzz emailed me a return label and shipped me another bottle completely free of charge. This is one of my favorite Blanton’s, rich and complex with a smooth finish. So pleased with the exceptional customer customer service.
Shipping was as expedient as I expected, however, it was within an acceptable timeframe. Bottles were all wrapped and packaged extremely well so there were no wax cracks or label wrinkles. Overall, very happy and will consider ordering again.
Authentic, well packaged, was nervous for no reason!
Bourbon is far superior than many I have had previously!
Ordered on Sunday and received on friday- no damage to the bottle but the presentation box was slightly damaged due to being folded up for shipping. Going to be giving the best gift ever this year.
