Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon Dumped 1992 / Japanese Import
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 1992 bottling, dumped on the 19th May and matured in barrel No.268.
Stored on rick No.5 and bottled at 93 proof.
More recent bottles of Blanton's have 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 by side will spell Blanton's. This bottle pre-dates these.
Japanese Import bottle.
