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.
