Imagine a deeper and richer version of the Blanton’s Single Barrel and add on a dash of exclusivity and panache.

In the winter of 1881, Albert Bacon Blanton was born into one of the first families of Bourbon. 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. They are famous for being the "original single barrel" 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 Single Barrel Red Takara Japanese Edition is one of the most enigmatic and elusive Bourbons to get your hands on anywhere outside of Japan. To be clear, it is the same core Bourbon we can all find at the local retailer and online. But this bottling is aged longer and bottled at a higher proof. That means eight years in the barrel as opposed to two at the same stunning 46.5% ABV. We say buy two — one to drink at your pleasure and another to pull out from your collection and impress the boss.

Smartass Corner:
The iconic Blanton’s Single Barrel line that we all know and love was originally crafted by Ferdie Falk and Bob Baranaskas for the Japanese market after they purchased The Albert B. Blanton’s Distillery — now called Buffalo Trace. They had the help of famed Master Distiller Elmer T. Lee.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Warm Maple

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is deep and powerful with vanilla, chocolate fudge, and cherry pipe tobacco.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is a deeper and richer version of the core Blanton’s with creamy notes of brown butter and clove that open up to marmalade, toffee, and wild honey.

The finish is long with peaches and cream.
Ratings & Reviews
Amazing. Best Bourbon I’ve ever tasted. Rich, Deep, Complex & Bold.
Blanton's red is really good! 9 stars for the bourbon, zero starts for the bourbon. Basically a slightly older version of the original single barrel here in the states. However, please don't pay $680 for it... this pricing is laughable and triple the already inflated secondary prices on these.
Edit: Zero stars for the price.
