Well known as the bottle with the horse and jockey lid, renowned for creating the first single barrel, super-premium bourbon and an unforgettably sweet citrus and oak flavour, Blanton's Original Single Barrel Bourbon is one of the finest. The product is aged in one barrel and never blended with other bourbon. Each barrel in the warehouse is periodically tested and those containing the finest whiskey are marked and tracked with care. Each barrel has its own unique taste and are allowed to mature for years far beyond the average age of bourbon, then each is hand plucked and hand packaged when the taste reaches perfection. A new classic is born with each barrel bourbon at its most individual of expressions.
The taste profile is sweet with citrus and oak. A creamy vanilla nose features hints of nuts, caramel, orange and light chocolate. Blanton's Original set the standard for single barrel bourbons. Best served neat or on the rocks.
