Liquor Review Notes:
Blanton's bourbon is a popular premium bourbon from Buffalo Trace that contains the signature, rye notes for which they are famous. It is named for Colonel Albert Blanton, who is said to have entertained his friends with bourbon from "Warehouse H." The idea of handpicked barrels turned into the 1984 launch of what they consider to be the very first bourbon entry into the "ultra-premium whiskey market."
Blanton's Gold Edition is bottled at a higher proof than the classic (103 proof to 93 proof respecitvely). It is intended for whom they call "discerning connoisseurs," by which we take to mean someone who won't be scared off by the high proof. They suggest serving neat with a splash of water.
Blanton's Bourbon has one of the coolest bottles around, the figures on the cork represent the 12 stages of horse-racing in honor of the Kentucky Derby. Obtaining all 12 of these figures is a sport among collectors.
Blanton's Gold Edition bourbon was named Best Bourbon in the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits competition (out of a field of 79 bourbons).
