Blanton’s Single Barrel Review

This is an older bottling of the standard Blanton’s Single Barrel (bottle stamped 1996). It’s NAS and bottled at 46.5% ABV.

Nose: Very grain forward with heavy corn notes. Quite oaky with a nice honeydew melon note.

Palate: Sweet up front with heavy corn and subtle oak. Light fruits, but deep in the background.

Finish: A little pepper here with sweet red apples and vanilla.

Rating: 88/100

Value for the money: Blanton’s usually retails around $50 and makes a great buy as they’re usually pretty solid.
