BLANTON'S Single Barrel #6 - 60th anniversary LMDW 60%

Straight Bourbon, United States, 70cl, Ref: 52048

Quantity limited to 2 bottle(s) by client.

Single Barrel #6. Named after the Colonel Blanton who managed the distillery from 1912 to 1953, this single barrel bourbon appeared in 1983. A true pioneer in the world of American Whiskey, it was not long before its reputation stretched way beyond the Kentucky bounds. A series of small inspirational playlets, this bottling celebrates the 60th anniversary of La Maison du Whisky and glows with an outstandingly complex fruitiness and exquisite floral character. Extremely coherent and harmonious, each one of its tasting stages is closely linked to the next.

Profile: the nose is airy, revealing citrus fruit, dried apricots and vanilla. Notes of precious wood and coconut. The palate offers a fruit symphony, with peaches, nectarines, mangoes, passion fruit and figs. The finish is herbaceous and floral (peony).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : burnished gold with copper tinges.
  • Nose : ethereal, lively. Delicious candied citrus fruits (orange, lemon) and dried apricots first rub shoulders with notes of vanilla and precious wood. In a very natural style, beeswax and multi-flower honey appears on the surface of the aromatic palette. Bourbon vanilla, chocolate, coconut and aromatic herbs (rosemary, sage) can be glimpsed in the background. Remarkably elegant, it becomes increasingly powdery (cocoa beans, rice grains).
  • Palate : taut and almost sinewy, it is also very delicate. Slices of apricot and nectarine begging to be devoured. Their deliciously sweet and tangy juices can then cover the taste buds. This truly fruity symphony then takes on more exotic (mango, passion fruit) and drier (fig, date) tones. The end of the palate is spicy (candied ginger) and vegetal (rhubarb).
  • Overall : long, balanced. The candied ginger, as well as a pleasantly fresh herbaceous note, links up with the palate. It lingers on to notes of pecan nuts, peanut butter and heady florals (hyacinth, peony). A very persuasive retro-nasal olfaction puts the spotlight back on maize. The empty glass is resinous, roasted and spicy (cardamom, cloves).
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
