Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon The finest bourbon in the world comes from a single barrel. Thats the way Colonel Albert B. Blanton first bottled his private reserve bourbon nearly a century ago. Blanton believed the center-cut or middle sections of Warehouse H were the best for aging his bourbon. Personally tasting and choosing each barrel, these barrels were reserved and bottled for ambassadors, dignitaries, family and friends becoming the worlds first single barrel bourbon. His time honored tradition lives on today as only a handful of barrels from the center of Warehouse H are selected to become Blantons Single Barrel Bourbon. Taken from the center-cut or middle sections of the famous Warehouse H, Blantons Original was once designated for ambassadors, dignitaries, and Colonel Blantons family and friends. Today, everyone has access to the worlds first single barrel bourbon. The taste profile is sweet with citrus and oak. A creamy vanilla nose features hints of nuts, caramel, orange and light chocolate. Blantons Original set the standard for single barrel bourbons.
