Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon Review

Welcome to the review for Blanton's Single Barrel. Blanton's is one of the most sought after and hyped bourbons out there. Week after week, even the search that bring people to this site has Blanton's all over it... My only exposure was a bottle I bought off the shelf 8 or 9 years ago. However, my in-laws recently toured the Buffalo Trace Distillery and were able to buy one bottle each and they were kind enough to send one my way.

Blanton's bills itself as 'The Original Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey' and I'm excited to see if the bourbon matches the hype. Let's get started.
