Made by Bourbon lovers for Bourbon lovers.

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.

Tom,
I like it and love giving it as a present to others, but it is overated.

It has a good flavor and smooth taste.

Anthony,
One of my favorite bourbons without question! It may require a touch of water due to the high proof but the nose and flavor profile are excellent.

Andrew,
The best bourbon I have ever had, and I have had almost all of them... wow, the proof I purchased was 127 and for the semi high proof it was AMAZING!!! the initial caramel fades but just as it does the finish comes in and slaps you in the face. Just amazing, not spicy at all, just so enjoyable I can’t even finish this review, I have to go back for another sip.

ONE OF IF NOT MY FAVORITE BOTTLE. BARREL STRENGTH IS MY PREFERENCE AND THIS IS MUCH DEEPER AND RICHER THAN OTHER BLANTON'S I'VE HAD.

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.

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!

Wes,
Smooth, hits all the tasting notes!

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.
