Blanton’s Gold Review

This is a standard Blanton’s release in foreign markets which is NAS and bottled at 51.5% ABV.

Nose: Great nose – banana, cherry with a splash of oak, brown sugar, and rich caramel.

Palate: Sawdust, honey and spices – cinnamon and earthy notes.

Finish: Dry with mostly oak and anise with a bit of caramel.

Rating: 88/100 – I like the SFTB (Straight from the Barrel) a bit better, but this is another Blanton’s I wish they sold in the US.

Value for the money: These can be found for about $100 shipped to the US from Europe which is too high. If it were available in the US, I’d buy it up to about $60.
