51.5% ABV

Mashbill: Buffalo Trace mashbill #2

Cask Type: New charred oak, Char #4

Chill Filtered: Yes



Color: Light Mahogany

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn

Nose: Vanilla, oak, caramel, coffee, baking spice, baked apple pie.

Taste: Rich brown sugar, vanilla, caramel, sweet corn, oak

Finish: Finishes drier than the palate, medium in warmth and length, more caramel.

Thoughts: Again the higher proof makes this much better than the regular Blanton’s, a solid bourbon, but I wouldn’t pay premiums to import it back to the States.
