One of the most interesting features of Blanton's Gold Edition is that it is hand-bottled after being aged in the best casks at Blanton Distilleries, in Kentucky. It is a Single Cask whisky, which ensures that it does not mix with the contents of other casks and retains a certain unity in taste and aroma.
Blanton's Gold Edition has been made to satisfy the most expert Bourbon lovers. It is complex, uniform, with marked flavours and character. It has the perfect balance between the citrus touches in taste and aroma and the distinctive characteristics given by the wooden barrels in which it ages.
Description of Blanton's Gold Edition
Blanton's Gold Edition (Touriga Nacional)
- Colour: Golden amber hue.
- Aroma: A complex, rich nose of caramel, chocolate, dried fruit, hay, moss, spice, and vanilla.
- Taste: A deep cigar box of flavours, dark and rich, with apricot, butter, cedar, honey, oak, pepper, and tobacco in the mix. A long finish gives a sweeter palate of pecan pie and toffee apple echoes. Despite this layered array, the overall effect is clean and exceptionally smooth.
PRODUCER: Blanton's Distilling Co.
More famously known as the Buffalo Trace Distillery, of Frankfort, Kentucky, the oldest continuously operating distillery in the USA. Both are brands of the Sazerac Company.
COUNTRY: United States
PRODUCTION DETAILS: The specific mashbill is unknown, but is a sour mash of corn, rye, and malted barley. As with all Blanton bourbons, Blanton's Gold Edition is aged in the special Warehouse H, where the metal walls, it was accidentally discovered, lead to the steadiest and best ageing of all. The barrels are sampled and chosen when deemed ‘ready' rather than at a specific age. The stunning globular bottle with golden horse jockey stopper perfectly represents the rich promise of its contents which, like the best single malts and finest cognacs, offer the very best a single barrel has to offer.
