BLANTON’S Single Barrel #20


Quantity limited to 1 bottle.

Created in 1984 by one of the most iconic master distillers in the world of bourbon, Elmer T Lee, Blanton’s is named after Colonel Albert Bacon Blanton, who ran the distillery from 1921 to 1953. All of the barrels in the history of the first single barrel bourbon whiskey to have been released on the market come from Warehouse H, which is exposed to high temperatures in the summer and low temperatures in the winter, which makes for optimal maturation. Throughout the tasting, this cask-strength bottling shows a bright and generous expression that continually pushes the boundaries of a flavour and aroma palette constantly refreshed by superb shaded sequences.

Colour: orangey copper with glints of gold.

Nose: rich, powerful. On the first nose, notes of almond and bourbon vanilla appear alongside notes of precious wood (oak, beeswax). Allowed to breathe, it becomes very delicately herbaceous (fresh tobacco) and candied (apricot, mango). Salted butter caramel, toffee and heather honey then illustrate its unctuous, almost sweet development. Gradually, various infusions (black tea, verbena) flood the aromatic palette with their subtle fragrances.

Palate: taut, lively. The particularly spicy (clove, black pepper, ginger) attack shows lots of personality. Full of life, it also brings to centre-stage delicately textured cereal notes (maize, rye). On the mid-palate, vanilla pod and black fruits (blueberry, blackcurrant) literally envelop the taste buds. The hot (iris, lily, cayenne pepper, paprika) and heady end of the palate also reveals an abundance of nuts (sweet chestnut, chestnut, almond).

Finish: long, distinguished. At the start of the finish, new spices appear (coriander, star anise, cinnamon). These are in remarkable harmony with the powdery notes (cocoa, coconut) that shower the tongue. Gradually, nectarine and greengage plum further flesh out the fruity register of this very complex Banton¡¯s. The mineral (schist, slate) retro-nasal olfaction beautifully returns to the maize notes found on the attack. The empty glass focuses on the lush and mentholated freshness of the flavour and aroma palette.
