Blanton’s is only aged in “Warehouse H,” built from steel walls with little insulation. This is significant because the greater temperature fluctuation made the barrels “breath” the Whiskey in an out, creating a richer product.
Every bottle is hand lettered with specifications, including unique distilling date, barrel date, and other details. Each bottle has one of eight Kentucky Thoroughbred horse stoppers on top.
The core “Original Single Barrel” Bourbon from Blanton’s is a fairly traditional corn/rye/barley sour mash aged in dark, #4 char white oak casks. It is bottled at an absolutely perfect 46.5% ABV and has a rich mouth feel with lots of citrus zest, caramel, and praline flavors.
