Tasting note

  • Appearance : cuivre à reflets acajou.
  • Nose : fin, précis. Des miels sombres (sapin, bruyère) donnent le ton de la palette aromatique. Il évolue ensuite sur les oranges sanguines et les fleurs capiteuses (lavande, lilas mauve). Puis, son registre vanillé et fruité (abricot, figue, datte) se met progressivement en place.
  • Palate : puissante, ferme. Crémeuse (coco, amande), l’attaque en bouche est également tertiaire (feuille morte, humus) et fruitée (noix, pistache). Le milieu de bouche fait la part belle aux fruits mûrs (mirabelle, prune). Les épices (poivre, cardamome, cannelle) alimentent l’arrière-bouche.
  • Overall : longue, quelque peu tannique, mais enrobée. La fève de cacao, la noix de muscade et le tabac à pipe témoignent de sa complexité. Son évolution chocolatée, épicée et herbacée se confirme. La rétro-olfaction est finement boisée (chêne) et florale (lilas), et le verre vide revient sur les céréales (maïs).
The brand

The brand

In 1983, Blanton’s was the first bourbon to be released as a single cask bottling, revolutionising American whiskey in the process. It is produced in the Buffalo Trace distillery in the heart of Kentucky. This straight bourbon is named after Colonel Blanton who ran the distillery from 1912 to 1953. Inspired by his predecessor, Blanton’s creator took advantage of the end of cask rotation, and decided to allow each cask to express its own unique flavour profile. This is why Blanton’s different expressions are able to offer a succulent and precise range of cereal, spice, candied fruit, citrus fruit and floral notes. Find out more
