Product description

Single Barrel Bourbon started with Blanton's in 1984. Nearing retirement, Master Distiller Elmer T. Lee was tasked with creating a bourbon of exceptionally high quality. With careful reflection, he recalled the earlier days of his career in the late 1940s when he worked under Colonel Albert B. Blanton. Colonel Blanton was the president of the distillery until 1952. Mr. Lee remembered that when Colonel Blanton would entertain dignitaries and other important guests he would handpick "honey barrels" from the center cut of Warehouse H and have that bourbon bottled one barrel at a time. As a tribute to Colonel Blanton's old tradition, Elmer T. Lee decided to name this new bourbon "Blanton's Single Barrel".

    This is a really good $40.00 bottle of whiskey. At $200.00 I’ll pass

    Great bourbon just the price doesn’t make sense in Paris, France the price is 60€ with taxes and this bourbon is from the usa.

  • Scott

    This is a good bourbon, but never pay more than $100 for it. There are great sub $100 options that are just as good. Try Woodford Double Oaked (around $60) or Old Forester 1910 (also around $60) for similar flavor profiles but better. I buy Blanton's when I can find it at the right price, which these days is almost never.

    Top shelf, the best I’ve had. To anyone who is a bourbon drinker if you haven’t had Blanton’s your missing out on the finest, and once you’ve had it you’ll want it anytime time you drink.

    $99 at the liquor store and it’s in stock a few times per month. This price is insanely obnoxious. Shame on Drizly.

    Literally right after I ordered, I saw all these ppl purporting this to be an extremely overhyped Bourbon. I then saw MSRP was like $60 and thought wth however after trying this wonderful nectar, I think it is not overhyped at all should be on anyone whiskey persons list to try. I don’t know if it’s overpriced since I’m relatively inexperienced but I’ve had a few scotches, islays, irishes, japanese, bourbons and I must say this is one of my tops. I also liked hibiki and monkey shoulder. Mac 12 is good. Still tryna figure out if redbreast 15 really does it. I’m gonna try it again but first impressions weren’t all that great. But the honey on the Blanton is something I can come back to consistently.

    This store always has the bottles I’m looking for but at 5x the price. Total rip-off this place..

FAQs

Bourbon is a corn-based, aged spirit that, while legally can be produced anywhere in the U.S., is Kentucky’s signature liquor; in fact, Kentucky distilleries make 95% of the world’s bourbon and the Bluegrass State hosts over a million visitors annually for bourbon tasting tourism.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
Much like how a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square, bourbon is a whiskey — but because of the stricter standards set for bourbon distillers, most whiskies are not considered bourbons.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Bourbon’s ingredient list is short and sweet (literally): corn, other grains, water and yeast. Barley, wheat and rye grains are often featured in the mash composition alongside the liquor’s signature corn base, but even so, the FDA considers straight bourbon as a gluten-free product that is safe for those with Celiac Disease or for individuals who suffer from other forms of gluten intolerance.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
