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 as they started doing it back in 1984 and 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 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.

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

Good, pretty sweet and smooth
Victor
Love everything about this except it's availability
Sam
Touch of vanilla and cherry. Very smooth.

Excellent over whiskey stones and compliment a full bodied cigar.
Ryan
One of my favorites. Only a couple more ponies to complete the collection.
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
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.
