All about making whisky
BLANTON'S Bourbon Street 50%
Straight Bourbon, United States / Kentucky, 70cl, Ref: 19544
We no longer need to present the most famous of the single barrel bourbons. Each new bottling does, however, offer its own fair share of surprises and originality. This version, baptised “Bourbon Street”, is no exception to the rule. In fact it has no qualms picking up its pilgrim’s staff to guide us through the rolling roads of Kentucky to breath in the fragrances and flavours seen in all the greatest bourbons, offering even more fruit than usual.
LMDW world exclusive Profile: complex and rich. It develops into notes of noble wood (cedar, oak) and stewed fruits (plum, greengage plum).
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively. Curious and creative, we are driven by our passion for products and our desire to constantly bring our clients the latest expressions through our own shops, our website whisky.fr and selected wine retail shops in France.
- Appearance : topaz with deep copper hues.
- Nose : elegant, complex. The very seductive initial nose oscillates between dried fruit (hazelnut, raisins), spices (clove, ginger), fresh fruit (pear, Mirabelle plum) and dark chocolate. It develops into notes of noble wood (cedar, oak) and stewed fruits (plum, greengage plum). Cocoa powder gradually covers the aromatic palette.
- Palate : firm, rich. As is often the case with Blanton’s, the spices develop into a more powerful register, with chillies even making an appearance. The slightly medicinal (ointment) mid-palate further brings out the sensation of warmth and power that emanates from the palate. Allowed to breath, it gains in creaminess and fruity softness (apricot, orange).
- Overall : long, lively. Empyreumatic, notes of beeswax and incense highlight the quality of the wood. Fresh ginger and cinnamon then mingle with cashew nuts and vanilla. The retro-nasal olfaction is very fruity (ripe apple, William pear) and the empty glass joyfully reveals spices (cardamom, saffron) and aromatic herbs (lime blossom, vervain).
- 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
