The finest bourbon in the world comes from a single barrel. That's the way Colonel Albert B. Blanton first bottled his private reserve bourbon nearly a century ago. Blanton believed the "center cut" or middle sections of Warehouse H were the best for aging his bourbon. Personally tasting and choosing each barrel, these barrels were reserved and bottled for ambassadors, dignitaries, family and friends becoming the world's first single barrel bourbon. His time honored tradition lives on today as only a handful of barrels from the center of Warehouse H are selected to become Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon.
A single barrel bourbon is one that is poured - and typically chill filtered - from the contents of one particular aging barrel, not mixed with whiskey from any other barrels and not blended with neutral spirits, colorings, or flavorings. The company says that producing a high quality whiskey using this production method requires constant monitoring of every barrel in the middle of the warehouse by the Master Distiller. The barrels are dumped by hand without using machinery.
Spicy aromas of dried citrus and orange peels with a hint of grassy rye and pepper. Overall full, soft and mellow. A classic treat, balanced with citrus, sweet grains, sugar and spice. One of the first specialty Bourbons.

"Smoky, woodsy, caramelized flavors of brown sugar, honey and maple syrup include a hint of wood. With a light to medium amber color, a full bodied, gorgeously textured, fleshy, broad, savory mouthfeel, and no harshness, this is either a brilliant master blend or a bourbon with some serious age. Velvety, opulent and stunningly complex. 97 points" - Robert Parker
