Blanton's Single Barrel Gold Edition Dumped 2018
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 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, the warehouse transfers heat quicker than brick warehouses, allowing for more rapid ageing.
This is a 2018 bottling of the Gold Edition, dumped on the 16th August and matured in barrel No.1160.
Stored on rick No.10 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 by side will spell Blanton's.
