Blanton's Bourbon "Straight from the Barrel" Dumped 2022
Region: KENTUCKY, USA
Distillery: Buffalo Trace
Size: 700 ml
"Named after former distillery president Colonel Albert B. Blanton, who always had very special supply of bourbon - his private reserve - handpicked and stored in legendary famous Warehouse H. The Blanton’s brand was launched in 1984 when Elmer T. Lee introduced the world to Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon a year before he retired. In doing so, he revolutionized the industry with the world’s first single barrel bourbon. Blanton’s Straight From the Barrel was the third version created, after the Original 93 proof and Gold 103 proof. This cask strength bourbon is beloved amongst connoisseurs." (Buffalo Trace Website)
Usually aged between 6 to 8 year, Blanton's is aged in Warehouse H at Buffalo Trace, which is the only metal-clad warehouse at the distillery (originally commissioned for construction by Albert B. Blanton, after whom the whiskey is named). The warehouse was built shortly after prohibition and being metal, transfers heat quicker than brick warehouses, allowing for more rapid ageing.
This Straight From the Barrel version gives a rare opportunity to sample a cask strength version of this very popular bourbon. With notes of honey, some walnut and candied pears Blanton’s straight bourbon is a premium American whiskey and one of the first labels to bottling single barrels.
