Review #803 – Blanton’s Gold

Review #803 | /r/Bourbon Review #440 – Blanton’s Gold

The Schtick: This is an international only release of Blanton’s, a popular single barrel bourbon released by Buffalo Trace in the USA. The major selling point behind Blanton’s Gold, apart from its exclusivity of markets, is that it is bottled at a higher proof than regular Blanton’s. Let’s see how it is.

Distiller: Buffalo Trace

Bottler: Buffalo Trace

ABV: 51.5% ABV

Age: NAS

Source: Sample

Nose: Honey, caramel, clove and tobacco. Some corn syrup, earthy pepper.

Taste: Medium mouth feel, clove and brown sugar. Maple, honey, oak. Mild fruits, earthy tobacco.

Finish: Medium length, earthy pepper, nice cocoa and creamy wafer. Some tobacco.

Overall: Not too bad – I like this better than the OG Blanton’s and about the same as some of their Straight From The Barrel expressions.

Thanks for reading!
