Blanton's Original Single Barrel was the first Blanton created for Albert’s family, friends, ambassadors, and dignitaries. It is produced from the mid-sections of Warehouse H at the famous Buffalo Trace Distillery. This bourbon is made with Mash Bill #2, a sour mash of corn, malted barley, and extra rye. Before it is matured in American White Oak casks. The nose on this one is deep with sweet hints of caramel mingled with vanilla, nutmeg, lemon, and orange citrus. On the palate, you'll notice subtle hints of honey, among strong caramel and corn. The finish is warm with layered notes of corn, vanilla, and nutmeg.
Blanton's Original Single 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.
The Glencairn Whisky Glass Set is an innovative whiskey glass that allows one to savor the taste of fine whiskey. They are great to use for any of your Single Malt Whiskeys, Single Barrel Bourbons, and Irish Malt Whiskeys. Its tapered mouth allows you to smell all of the aromas whisky has to offer. Any whisky connoisseur will love a Glencairn glass! All spirits have their Glass that bests compliments the experience. Glencairn Crystal is the ideal glass for whiskey, it was designed by Raymond Davidson nearly 25 years earlier, however, its development involved gathering the master blenders from the five largest whiskey companies and asking them to help perfect his initial design. Even though the whiskey glass's traditional style is an Old Fashioned whiskey tumbler, it does not hold and focus the aromas as much for the experience of the drinker as the other styles, which curve inward towards the top of the glass. While not all drinkers may find the strong aroma produced by such glasses, inward-curved glasses are often preferred by connoisseurs who consider the aroma especially important to the experience.
JM's Dominican Churchill Maduro Cigars are premium cigars which are manufactured by the JM Tobacco Company in Santiago, Dominican Republic. JM's are handmade with prime Dominican Cuban-seed long filler tobaccos. These Cigars are hand rolled from well-aged Cuban seed tobacco leaves which are grown in the rich soils of the Dominican Republic and then wrapped carefully in a dark and oily Broadleaf Maduro wrapper to create a bold, and hearty cigar. The honey-like sweetness and the natural sweet aroma make this cigar enjoyably smooth and flavorful of earthy smoke.
