Blanton’s The Original Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey

  Blanton’s The Original Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey is viewed by many as the gold standard for Bourbon. The whiskey is typically aged 6-8 years and has about 15% rye in the mash bill. The dark orange copper color dram is a creamy full bodied effort that comes in smooth at 93 proof and leaves […]

This was a very smooth and balanced easy drinking dark golden whiskey.  The medium body dram was chock full of […]
