Proof66 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 Bourbon has one of the coolest bottles around, the figures on the cork represent the 8 different poses of horse-racing in honor of the Kentucky Derby.

So it would seem there is some sort of backorder on this. If you can find it... buy it. I've had it, and it is great. Smooth and wonderful. Truly a delight. It is very drinkable. You can just sit and enjoy or you could suddenly realize you drank WAY too much of it. You'll still want another glass. This is "the good bottle" you'll want for special days.
