It’s an Evergreen. 
 
Colonel Albert B. Blanton was born into one of the first families of Bourbon back in 1881. At the age of sixteen, he started work in the distillery as an office boy and fast became a leading pioneer in the development of Bourbon. Today, Blanton’s is a division of Sazerac Company — one of the largest privately held liquor companies in the world. They distill it in their Buffalo Trace Distillery, but make no mistake, Blanton’s is a unique, stand-alone brand with a focus on nothing but greatness. 
 
Blanton's Bourbons are something special. Just look at the bottle! Have you ever seen such a unique shape in an American Whiskey? And the cast metal stopper of a Kentucky Thoroughbred horse just adds to the mystique. This Blanton is just what the name says it is, the original Single Barrel they started doing it back in 1984, and they haven’t changed anything since. Done in the same manner as Colonel Albert B. Blanton did his private reserve almost a hundred years ago, part of the barrels are from the center part of Warehouse H, where Blanton believed were the optimal conditions for Bourbon ageing. A classic Bourbon that still holds standards yay high for others in the game.
 
Blanton's Original Single Barrel was the winner of the Flaviar Community Award 2017 in its respective category!
