Blanton's Original Single Barrel was the first Blanton's created for ambassadors, dignitaries, and Colonel Blanton’s family and friends. Taken from the center-cut or middle sections of the famous Warehouse H. Today, everyone has access to the world’s first single barrel bourbon. This bourbon is made with a sour mash of corn, rye and malted barley before maturing in American White Oak casks. The nose on this one is very deep, and satisfying with incredibly sweet hints of caramel, vanilla, nutmeg, and citrus. Prominent dry vanilla notes on the palate with subtle hints of honey amid strong caramel and corn. On the palate blends of sweet vanilla, tangy orange citrus and subtle lemon. The finish is medium composed of returning corn, vanilla, and nutmeg flavors. Bottled at 46.5%. This bourbon scored three points higher than Pappy Van Winkle's 23 Year Old Bourbon at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge in 2012.
Blanton's Original Single Barrel is best known as "liquid gold"! It is a special Japanese exclusive Blanton's bourbon bottled at 40% ABV. It was first released in1984 by Elmer T. Lee who was the Master distiller at Buffalo Trace at the time. Previously known as the George T. Stagg 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 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. It is aged a fine 8 years, and has a higher rye content. Although Blanton is all about quality over quantity, the liquor brand can only supply 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 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. Still, 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.
Please drink responsibly, you must be at least 21 years of age to drink alcoholic beverage.
I ordered the Blatons package - everything arrived except the single barrel, I received some other bottle of Burbon-- so I had to send it back and wait for this one. I only downgraded because of that - otherwise delighted with the responses and the product.
Great bourbon but paid too much
It was well. This is a great tasting bourbon if you can find it for retail price. Don’t be like me and pay the outrageous prices this place and others are asking.
Gift for my boyfriend! He loved it!
Great experience with everything! Would order again!
