Blanton's was the first ever Single Barrel Bourbon in the world, and it set the standards for others to follow. This fantastic product was named after the late Colonel Albert Bacon Blanton (1881-1959), who managed the largest distillery of its day.

Barrel 179. Warehouse H. Rick 44
Tasted: Dec 2010
Quite a rich nose with no shortage of crisp almost peaty rye to balance the fat wheat and sweet but edgy corn meal. Oily and elegant a sort of Evan Williams meets Sazarac character. The oak is relatively restrained allowing the complexity of the nose to entice. With time some violet notes become apparent, but the rye spices keeps the nose edgy.

Like the nose the palate opens with the crisp rye followed by toffee popcorn and piquant alcohol. The oak moves in bringing some gentle spices and natural caramel. Although the finish is reasonably long and laid back it is pretty dry. The combination of rye and oak see to that � definitely edgy!

With water it knocks back the rye intensity on the nose, bringing out the hidden coffee/ cream and orange nuances. Really spicy and rounded now with the rye only noticeable at the periphery. The palate is sweeter as the subdued rye allows the corn to play and personally I miss the impact of the rye. Possibly a bit longer now with that classic earthy finish.
