Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon Limited Edition 2016 / M&P Wine and Spirits Festival Exclusive
First introduced by then George T. Stagg distillery Master Distiller, Elmer T. Lee, Blanton's was the first single barrel bourbon popularised in the US.
Blanton's single barrel is normally a 6 to 8 year old bourbon. It is aged in Warehouse H at Buffalo Trace, which is the only metal-clad 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, dumped on the 22nd July and matured in barrel No.1296.
Stored on rick No.4 and bottled at 100 proof for the M&P Wine and Spirits festival in Poland.
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 Blantons. This stopper is letter T.
