The finest bourbon in the world comes from a single barrel. That’s 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 himself. These barrels were reserved and bottled for ambassadors, dignitaries, family, and friends, becoming the world’s 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 Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon.

The Liquor Depot Barrel Selection is very deep and satisfying. The taste has a masterful start with deep dry vanilla notes in perfect harmony with hints of honey amid the strong caramel. The long, creamy caramel lingers until some late soft peppers arrive to spice things up. The complexity and harmony of spice and honey really makes for a  bourbon that suits all tastes and one to keep the discerning whiskey drinker almost purring with delight. Blanton's Bourbon is availible in .375 ml and .750 ml bottles.

The tiny horse and jockey on the bottle stoppers are collector's items, too! Read more about them on the Blanton's Bourbon website.
