Blanton's Original Single Barrel
Bourbon — Kentucky, USA
Reviewed February 28, 2023 (edited March 2, 2023)
Store pick from Total Wine and More, Phoenix AZ that I won the right to buy in a raffle so figured what the hell. (As I have reviewed this bourbon before, this review will focus on the differences between this and the standard offering. For my records and probably useless to anyone outside of the Phoenix area) Nose full of fruit and cinnamon. Not as much vanilla on this one as in past offerings. Palate finally brings the vanilla but fruit (apple, strawberry), cinnamon, and oak take center stage. Slow morph to the finish which brings a hint of chocolate which I really enjoyed. Probably the best Blantons offering I’ve had. Now the rub; this store pick version was up charged to $87. No way it’s worth that. I will give it the rating it deserves given the slightly improved flavor profile but overall, remind me to stop buying this whiskey.
87.0 USD per Bottle
