Blanton's Straight From The Barrel Bourbon is easily one of the Greatest bourbons in the world. This bourbon is a Cask strength expression, making it one of the boldest in the Blanton's collection. Its high alcohol by volume is inviting. Its taste profile undertakes depths of flavor only found in the rarest spirits. Its created with Mash Bill#2, a sour mash of corn, malted barley, and extra rye, before maturing in American White Oak casks. The nose on this one is bold and savory, with dominant hints of smoke mingled with earthy undertones of walnuts, and hazelnut with a warm buttery mouthfeel. On the palate, you'll find subtle hints of honey, rye, and spices. The finish is strong and bold with a delicate nuisance of chocolatey espresso, honey, and spice.
Blanton's Straight From The Barrel Bourbon is best known as "liquid gold"! The first Blanton Bourbon from this vast collection was produced in 1984 under the guidance of Elmer T. Lee, Master distiller at the George T. Stagg Distillery, now known as the infamous Buffalo Trace Distillery. There he worked with Colonel Albert Bacon Blanton, the President of the Distillery from 1921-1951. During the time he worked for him, he noticed that whenever there were ambassadors, dignitaries, and Colonel Blanton family and friends, he would always choose a bottle aged at warehouse H at Buffalo Trace. Which is the only metal-clad warehouse at the distillery, built shortly after prohibition. Being metal meant it created a lot of temperature fluctuation because the metal doesn't insulate and would change how the whisky aged. They are aged 6-8 years and have a higher rye content. Blanton's is all about quality over quantity which can make them hard to obtain, as the liquor brand can only produce so much at a time. There are eight different horse stoppers on the bottles of Blanton's. They were added in 1999, each stopper has a letter circled on the lower left side to spell out “B-L-A-N-T-O-N'-S.” When you line them up the horse's and jockey's display different positions of a horse race, from them standing at the gate to them crossing the finish line. They are visible upon purchase, though some customers claim that some letters are harder to find than others. Blanton assures fans that it produces the same number of each, every year. Blanton's found overseas will be 700 ml, while domestic releases are 750 ml.
