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!

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Mike,
If you're on the fence on this one please let me assure you that this is my favorite bourbon of all time. If you see it buy it because it is very hard to find. You're welcome in advance.

James,
Found it a delight, a nice single barrel bourbon. carmel with a touch of vanilla, nutty and woodie under tones with a hint of zest and chocolate . Blanton's Original also comes in a delightful bottle that draws the eye. Hmm tempting... nice and smokey, both sweet and sharp excellent pairing with a cigar.

I received a sample in my latest tasting box. I don't normally go for Bourbons, but this was fantastic. Very smooth with a hint of pear. If I see a bottle around somewhere, I'll have to buy it.

Ilya,
Не являюсь ценителем бурбонов из-за специфических оттенков и своеобразной жесткости напитков, но конкретно этот представитель крайне рекомендую к ознакомлению. Интересный напиток с нотками карамели и ванильным послевкусием.

Was in Columbus, Ohio and just broke up with my girlfriend. The bartender at the Hilton asked me what I wanted, and I said Blanton's. He said, "You're in luck." He pour a normal drink neat. Asked me what happened, I told him. He added to it and made it a double double. Lol. Had one more double double, plus a little extra to kill the bottle. He charged me for a single shot. Great bartender, but an incredible bourbon. Loved every sip. Went down easy from the start to the finish. Can't describe the taste right now, but it is always an experience. This is my number one with Buffalo Trace a close second. I am still looking for that elusive Bourbon with little to no burn. A little Peet is ok.

Roses and fresh cut grass in the nose. Strawberry jam and caramel towards the end. Enchanting, smooth.
Daryl
Daryl,
Wonderfully smooth, gives you just a little burn to let you know it's bourbon. A little sweet and not too woody. Delicious.

One of my favorites. Only a couple more ponies to complete the collection.
Craig
Craig,
Overhyped & overpriced. Not among the top ten bourbons I've tasted. (RE: Blanton's) Catoctin Creek is an okay rye,but not among the best I've tasted. "Journeyman Corsets, Whips & Whiskey" is a cute marketing gimmick but the whiskey is substandard.
Deja
Deja,
Kind of medicinal tasting..

This is a great bourbon... Not too sweet not too much burn. Very smooth. I'll admit, I became interested in this bourbon after seeing it consumed on two of my favorite television shows... House of Cards and Justified. I love pouring a few fingers while I watch.
