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. 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 Straight from the Barrel is 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 (not to mention giving you an opportunity to finally start collecting something again!). 

And we're only just beginning to talk about what's inside the bottle: Starting with the unique mash bill of corn, rye for spice, and malted barley. They age it in white oak and pour it straight into the bottle uncut and unfiltered. Since it’s single cask strength, this means that the ABV could be anywhere from 62% to 67%. Enough talk. If you love great Bourbon, you are going to love Blanton's Straight from the Barrel.

Not for me! Did not taste good.

Steve,
I am a huge fan of blantons single barrel and this is just such an amazing step up. I think it is more complex and has a nice smooth finish considering the high proof.

Jack,
Excellent, smooth

Paul,
One of, if not the smoothest tasting bourbons to be put in a bottle.

Always my favorite! Great all around.
 
Kurt
Kurt,
I love the proof! Very good flavor for barrel proof. Very sweet like brown sugar and caramel finish. Add a cube of ice and some time to open up and this high proof drink turns dangerous at how easy it goes down. My favorite so far!

Notes of fruit and honey. Warm, medium finish. Great with a steak or a cigar. Can be enjoyed neat or with a few rocks. A go to bourbon that never disappoints.
