Synopsis:

Arriving true to Blanton's fashion, this single barrel selection over promises with a delightful nose but under delivers with a palate and finish that are just fine. Great fit for fans of earthy sweetness with some pepper, though this horse should go remarkably unchased, when loose.

  • Intro:

    Distilled by Buffalo Trace for the Blanton's product line of expressions, this single barrel selection by Bourbon Street comes from barrel #11, in Warehouse H. Matured in Rick #31, this is bottle #35 from the barrel, dumped 4-11-2017. For those unaware, the Blantons product line is distilled by Buffalo Trace using Mashbill #2 for Age International Brands. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Big brown sugar note up front, lots of pepper, spice, a hint of earthiness. Molasses, really heavy on the nose in an enticing manner. Sweet, desserty, with a hint of pepper and earth.

  • Taste:

    Thin on the palate, but the proof is right. Not hot, feels about 93 proof, but doesn't convey a syrupy or rich essence. Earthy, lots of pepper, some honey, a bit of caramel.

  • Finish:

    Medium finish. Quite well mannered, nice flavor here though it doesn't stick around a ton.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this is fine. Not the best Blanton's single barrel I've had, but far from the worst. I like this about as much as a standard, off the shelf, Buffalo Trace.
