The finest bourbon in the world comes from a single barrel. That’s the way Colonel Albert B. Blanton first bottled his private reserve bourbon nearly a century ago. Blanton believed the “center-cut” or middle sections of Warehouse H were the best for aging his bourbon. Personally tasting and choosing each barrel, these barrels were reserved and bottled for ambassadors, dignitaries, family and friends becoming the world’s first single barrel bourbon. His time honored tradition lives on today as only a handful of barrels from the center of Warehouse H are selected to become Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon.
Had some of the a couple weeks ago at a buddy’s batchelor party, and holy crap is it the most smooth, tasty Bourbon I’ve ever had in my entire damn life. It’s too expensive for casual drinking, but if you have the opportunity, I would HIGHLY suggest you try it.
