Albert Bacon Blanton was born in the winter of 1881, and if you are a fan of bourbon whiskey, then you may have heard about Blanton’s brand. When he was 16-years-old, Blanton started to work in a distillery as an office boy, and it did not take much time before he was the leading pioneer of bourbon development. He was made the president of the company in 1921, at the age of forty, and he retired in 1952. During his time as the president, the distillery expanded from 44 buildings to a much larger 144. This made their Distillery the largest of its day.
During that time, Albert decided to create his own very special, and limited supply of bourbon. It was handpicked and is currently stored at the famous Warehouse H. Albert Bacon Blanton died in 1959, but his legacy still lives on. In 1984, Blanton's Original Single Barrel was introduced, and it was sold incredibly fast. This bourbon was the first one of its kind.
Within the Blanton’s brand, there are four different spirits, which each bring a distinct style. If you are searching out that original taste, Blanton's Original Single Barrel is the way to go. In Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible, Blanton's Original Single Barrel is described as “liquid gold”. This drink was designated for dignitaries, ambassadors, and Colonel Blanton’s family and friends. We are lucky to be alive at a time when Blanton's Original Single Barrel is available for the whole world!
Blanton's Original Single Barrel is bottled in their original round bottle shape and has a honey-color. At the top of the bottle, there is a classic racehorse, which makes the bottle look vintage. Upon opening, you will be greeted with a classic aroma of vanilla, followed by nutmeg and spices. On your first sip, expect powerful dry vanilla notes, with hints of caramel, corn, and honey. Blanton's Original Single Barrel finish is composed of nutmeg and corn flavors, and the length is exceptional.
