Blanton's Original Single Barrel Bourbon  

The Original Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey

In the winter of 1881, Albert Bacon Blanton was born into one of the first families of bourbon history. 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. From the time he was made company president in 1921 until his retirement in 1952, his Distillery expanded from 44 to 144 buildings to become the largest Distillery of its day. During that period Colonel Blanton created his very special and limited supply of bourbon - his private reserve - handpicked and stored in what now is known as the famous Warehouse H. Although Colonel Blanton died in the spring of 1959, his legacy lives.

Introduced in 1984, Blanton’s namesake bourbon was the first ever Single Barrel Bourbon sold commercially. Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon is the first of its kind.

Blanton’s is distilled by Buffalo Trace in Frankfort, Kentucky. Blanton’s bourbon is distilled from a “high-rye” mash bill — meaning after the higher proportion of corn common in Buffalo Trace bourbons, the rest (or much of the rest) of the mash bill is made up of rye. Wheated whiskies like Weller Special Reserve, tend to be softer, a kick of rye in a mash bill tends to produce a bit more in the way of fruit and spice in the whiskey, which play nicely with caramel and char. Though it’s worth noting that the final flavor profile varies from barrel to barrel with this American bourbon.

Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon tasting notes: A deep, satisfying nose of nutmeg and spices. Powerful dry vanilla notes in harmony with hints of honey amid strong caramel and corn. A medium finish composed of returning corn and nutmeg flavors.

Best served neat or on the rocks. 

Bottled at 46.5% alcohol by volume.

Blanton's Black Special Edition

Created for exceptional smoothness and a clean finish, this bourbon is made with a sour mash of corn, rye and malted barley before maturing in American White Oak casks. The nose is powerful and dry with honey, rye, dried fruits, vanilla and chocolate. The palate is full and rich with sharp apricot notes alongside butter, pepper, honey and oak. The finish is long with toffee apples developing to pecan and caramel.

Produced exclusively for the Japanese export market at 80 proof, Blanton's Black Label is one of the rarest bourbon whiskeys in the world. Remarkably similar to the green-labeled Special Reserve, the main difference is an 8-year minimum aged barrel selection process (as opposed to the standard 6), which produces a more complex, robust, and refined whiskey tasting experience. Like the Takara Red edition, the Black Label is a statement piece for any serious bourbon collector and a must-try for any keen Blanton's enthusiast.

Crafted for the Japanese market, this Blanton's expression is made with Buffalo Trace high-rye mash #2. Aged 8 years in new charred American oak, it's bottled at 80 proof.

TASTING NOTES

There's caramel, vanilla, apple, cherry, dark sugar, and plenty of oak making itself known on the nose. Vanilla and fruit are on the palate with oaky undertones and a pleasant sweetness throughout. The medium finish is smooth and well-rounded with lingering vanilla.

Blanton's Red Label Japanese Edition

Made exclusively for the Japanese market, this premium expression is similar to the Original Single Barrel Bourbon, with one key difference: it's aged for an additional 2 years.

The taste profile is sweet, with notes of citrus and oak. The creamy vanilla nose is teased with caramel and butterscotch, all underscored by familiar baking spices such as clove, nutmeg, or cinnamon. Blanton’s Original Bourbon set the standard for single barrel bourbons in 1984. Best served neat or on the rocks to taste the incredible flavor profile of this American whiskey.

TASTING NOTES

Complex and refined, this bourbon opens spicy with nutmeg on the nose. Honey, vanilla, caramel, and corn are on the palate. Finishes medium with corn and spice notes.

 

About Blanton’s Bourbon

In the winter of 1881, Albert Bacon Blanton was born on a farm situated just outside of Frankfort, Kentucky. At the age of 16, Blanton began working at the Old Fire Copper Distillery (often abbreviated O.F.C. Distillery) as an office boy. Over the next few years, Blanton reportedly worked in every department at the distillery. By the age of 20, he was appointed the superintendent of O.F.C, and worked there until his retirement in 1952.

Much like his mentor, E.H. Taylor, Blanton was a traditional bourbon aristocrat, wedded to the production of Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. Blanton identified a certain section of Warehouse H at his distillery, which he believed was the best for aging bourbon, and would personally select individual barrels from the section to bottle for his own private reserve.

Today, Blanton's Original Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey is still aged in the same section of Warehouse H as Blanton's Private Reserve was over 50 years ago. Made from the high-rye Buffalo Trace mash bill of corn, rye, and malted barley.

Blanton’s is a bourbon whiskey which is produced and marketed by the Sazerac Company. It is distilled in Frankfort, Kentucky at the Buffalo Trace Distillery.

The Blanton’s brand was launched in 1984 under the guidance of the distillery’s master distiller Elmer T. Lee, as the first modern bourbon marketed as a single barrel bourbon. The original brand name was “Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon.” The barrels are dumped by hand without using machinery. There are eight different stopper designs, each with a different letter of the alphabet molded into it and topped with a figurine of a racehorse and jockey. When placed in order, spelling “B L A N T O N’ S”, the horse and jockey’s poses display eight different scenes of a horse race, from standing at the gate, to crossing the finish line with a win.

 

About Colonel Albert Bacon Blanton

Colonel Albert Bacon Blanton was born on a farm near the distillery in 1881.  In 1897, at the (very) young age of 16, Colonel Blanton was hired as a clerk at the distillery.  As he grew older he became very familiar with the distillery’s operations, working in every department.  He started as an office boy at the age of 16, and finally in 1921 he was in charge of the entire operation becoming President of the distillery. Colonel Blanton’s hands-on experience in all aspects of the distillery proved invaluable. His leadership guided the distillery through some of the most trying times of the 20th century, starting with Prohibition. Colonel Blanton’s savvy business acumen allowed bourbon production to continue during Prohibition, keeping the distillery operating when many others were closing their doors.  When Prohibition ended in 1933, the nation was in the throes of the Great Depression. Again, Colonel Blanton’s leadership allowed the distillery to prevail during the lean times of the Depression.  In 1937, the rising waters of the KY river engulfed the distillery. Remarkably within just 24 hours of the flood water receding Colonel Blanton restored the distillery to normal operations. A few years later, during World War II, Colonel Blanton’s gift for guidance kept the distillery intact at a time when it was required to suspend whiskey making and exclusively produce straight alcohol for military purposes.

Colonel Blanton emerged from these trials undaunted because his determination to create world-class bourbons never faltered. Most importantly, he carried the time-honored traditions of Kentucky bourbon making into the modern era.

 

More About The Blanton’s Bourbon Stoppers

The horse and jockey atop the bottle stoppers are now a recognized trademark of Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon. The rich heritage and tradition of horses in Kentucky parallel that of bourbon. This is our way of paying homage to this Kentucky heritage.  Beginning in 1999 a collector's set of eight different stoppers was produced. The set features a horse and jockey in different strides and poses resembling the stages of a horse race, from beginning to end. Each stopper is marked with a single letter that spells Blanton's when the set has been completed.  The final stopper, marked by “S” always finishes the race in victory!
