26 Feb 13 – Blanton’s Gold Edition Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon

This fantastic bourbon was named after the late Colonel Albert Bacon Blanton (1881-1959), who managed the largest distillery of its day (now owned by Buffalo Trace Distillery, Frankfort, Kentucky).  It was during that time that he created a very special and limited supply of bourbon, which he hand-picked and stored in what is now known as the famous Warehouse H which was built after prohibition to allow greater production capacity. Blanton’s Original Single Barrel Bourbon is aged in a new American oak barrel for at least 8 years.  Unlike most others, it is never blended with any other bourbon.   Our members described a nose of rye and dried fruits with subtle notes of chocolate.  The taste was an explosion of sublime buttery sweetness with elements of cognac, apples and honey followed by a big alcohol kick which quickly tapered off to a finish that revealed toffee, almonds and a hint of tobacco  – all within a lovely mouth-coating oiliness.  This bottle was purchased for $99.95 at the Rideau and King Edward LCBO location in Ottawa.
