BLANTON'S Gold Edition Golden Promise 51,5%
Bourbon, United States / Kentucky, 70cl, Ref: COL55179
Bottled exclusively for the Maison du Whisky's bar, the Golden Promise, this Blanton's proudly displays the colours of the Buffalo Trace distillery. Its particularly sunny aromatic and gustatory palette faithfully reproduces all of the flavours and aromas responsible for the renown of the first single barrel bourbon ever created, in 1984. Transcended by an incredibly noble wood, it is in turns fruity, chocolatey, liquorice, floral, herbaceous, medicinal, mineral, spicy and hot.
Profile: the concentrated initial nose wavers between liquorice, dark chocolate, dried apricot and salted butter caramel. Allowed to breathe, it becomes floral (vetiver). The invigorating attack is delicately woody (beeswax). It evokes an apricot sorbet. The elegant mid-palate is powdery and hot (Espelette). The enveloping finish is silky (taffeta) and nobly spicy (saffron). Exclusive to LMDW.
- Appearance : copper with a topaz hue.
- Nose : rich, concentrated. The absolutely magnificent initial nose wavers between liquorice, dark chocolate, dried apricot, quince jelly, salted butter caramel, grilled sweetcorn and pipe tobacco. Allowed to breathe, it becomes more floral (vetiver, geranium, hyacinth). Its medicinal character (ointment, camphor) gradually takes hold. The very warm aromatic palette shows lots of depth and power.
- Palate : invigorating, dense. The very delicately woody (beeswax) attack is like an apricot sorbet. Sprinkled with a handful of violet petals, it is also profoundly mineral (slate, schist). The elegant mid-palate is powdery and spicy (cocoa, grated ginger). Its fruity sweetness (peach, chestnut) is pepped up with chilli (paprika, Espelette). A sensation of fullness emanates from the flavour palette.
- Overall : long, enveloping. At the start of the finish, the taste buds are treated to a taffeta-like mouthfeel. Constantly climbing higher, it reveals in turns notes of tobacco, rhubarb, strawberry, walnut, quince and saffron. The retronasal olfaction is delicately woody (oak stave, beeswax) and powdery (cocoa, coffee). Creating a neat finish, the empty glass pays tribute to maize.
- 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
