Blanton's Single Barrel Dumped 1993
First introduced by then Ancient Age distillery Master Distiller, Elmer T. Lee, Blanton's was the first single barrel bourbon popularised in the US. Ancient Age was renamed the Buffalo Trace distillery by the Sazerac company in 1999.
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-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, transfers heat quicker than brick warehouses, allowing for more rapid ageing.
This is a 1993 bottling, dumped on the 10th May and matured in barrel #134.
Stored on rick number 48 and bottled at 92 US 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.
