Blanton's Single Barrel Limited Edition 2017 / M&P Wine and Spirits Festival
First introduced by then George T. Stagg distillery Master Distiller, Elmer T. Lee, Blanton's was the first single barrel bourbon popularised in the US. George T. Stagg was renamed the Buffalo Trace distillery by the Sazerac company in 1999.
Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon is normally a 6 to 8 year old bourbon. It is aged in Warehouse H at Buffalo Trace, which is the only metal-clad warehouse at the distillery, commissioned for construction by Albert B. Blanton, after whom the whiskey is named. The warehouse was built shortly after prohibition and being metal, transfers heat quicker than brick warehouses, allowing for more rapid ageing.
This is a 2017 bottling, dumped on the 18th July and matured in barrel #297.
Stored on rick No.14 and bottled at 100 US proof for the 2017 M&P Wine & Spirits festival.
Each bottle of Blanton's has one of 8 different stoppers, each depicting a horse and jockey at a different stage of finishing a race. The designs are all lettered so that a complete set laid out side by side will spell "BLANTONS." This stopper is letter O.
Please be advised that the absence of any specific condition reports does not imply that this bottle is in perfect condition. We recommend close inspection of all images prior to placing any bids, and any further information required can be provided upon request.
