Blanton’s single-barrel is a series from Buffalo Trace, so named after Colonel Albert Bacon Blanton, who served as the company’s president from 1921 until his retirement in 1952. His namesake single-barrel is the first of its kind, packed with dry vanilla, honey and caramel.
Nose: The nose on this bourbon is stunning. Floral notes with cherry and apple on the front, with caramel, vanilla, and oak on the back end.
Palate: The taste is smooth. A very easy drinker. Little to no burn on the tongue. Fruit and sweet on the front of the tongue make way for the oak of the 8 year aged juice. The oak is not overpowering, but it’s definitely noticeable.
Finish: The finish on this bottle was medium at best. It doesn’t linger. It’s tasty and makes a great sipping drink.
