Blanton's Single Barrel Gold Edition 2016
Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon is normally a 6 to 8 year old bourbon. It is aged in Warehouse H at Buffalo Trace, which is the only metal-cladded warehouse at the distillery, commissioned for construction by Albert B. Blanton, after whom the whiskey is named. The warehouse was built shortly after prohibition and being metal, the warehouse transfers heat quicker than brick warehouses, allowing for more rapid aging.
This is a 2016 bottling of the Gold Edition, dumped on the 17th June and matured in barrel No.1268.
Stored on rick No.6 and bottled at 103 proof.
Each bottle of Blanton's has one of 8 different stoppers, each depicting a horse and jockey at a different stage of finishing a race. The designs are all lettered so that a complete set laid out side bby side will spell Blanton's. This stopper is letter S.
