Review #1720 | Bourbon Review #707

Distiller: Buffalo Trace

Bottler: Buffalo Trace

Brand: Blantons

Selection: Bourbon Street Wine and Spirits

ABV: 46.5% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Big brown sugar note up front, lots of pepper, spice, a hint of earthiness. Molasses, really heavy on the nose in an enticing manner. Sweet, desserty, with a hint of pepper and earth.

Taste: Thin on the palate, but the proof is right. Not hot, feels about 93 proof, but doesn’t convey a syrupy or rich essence. Earthy, lots of pepper, some honey, a bit of caramel.

Finish: Medium finish. Quite well mannered, nice flavor here though it doesn’t stick around a ton.

Overall: Overall, this is fine. Not the best Blanton’s single barrel I’ve had, but far from the worst. I like this about as much as a standard, off the shelf, Buffalo Trace.

Thanks for reading!
