Taste
Blanton's Green Label was created for connoisseurs who appreciate smoothness in their bourbon. Blanton's Special Reserve Green Label is bottled at 80 proof and created with Mash Bill #2, a sour mash of corn, malted barley, and extra rye before maturing in American White Oak casks. The palate has a light airy feel making it an easy sipping bourbon. The nose on this one is rich with sour notes of well-cooked citrus of bright oranges or lemons, mingled with very mild hints of tobacco and sweet vanilla notes. Soft and silky on the palate, with blended rich cream, cardamom, ginger, and spice. The finish is bitter with a creamy coating.

History
Blanton's Green 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.

Very Good Bourbon

I'll willingly pay $200 for this bourbon, even though less would nice. It is heads above the pack with a very pleasant nose most notably of buttery caramel for me which leads into a smooth and lingering palate.

Unbelievably asininely overpriced

This stuff is barely 2 dollars better than the $35 bourbon I get from my local distiller. But these jokers are charging $200 more!! I want to write some scathing nasty commentary about this idiotic asshattery, but my grandmother taught me that if you can’t say something nice….
