September 2013 Bourbon of the Month

September 2013

We are very pleased to announce that Blanton’s Bourbon has been selected as our September 2013 Bourbon of the Month. Blanton’s Bourbon is an excellent bourbon definitely worthy of this title. You can find our full rating & review below.



Name: Blanton’s

Bottled By: Sazerac

ABV: 46.5%

Proof: 93

Age: No age statement

Our Rating: 96%

Notes: Blanton’s will greet you with a nice warm scent of brown sugar and figs. This bourbon is very smooth and mild and has a very strong taste of vanilla, caramel, and oak. The finish is smooth and lengthy with a subtle butterscotch taste. Blanton’s has a somewhat higher price tag, roughly $50 dollars, but it is well worth it in our opinion.  Save this one for special occasions and without hesitation always enjoy this one neat. We highly recommend picking up a bottle of Blanton’s if you haven’t tried it already.

History: Blanton’s was named after one of the distillery’s early leaders, Albert B. Blanton, who the company claims spent most of his life preserving the tradition of handcrafted bourbon. Blanton worked at the distillery for around 55 years. He was born on a farm just outside of Frankfurt, Kentucky and began working at the distillery when he was 16 years old. Over the next few years he worked in every department, and in 1912 he was appointed superintendent of the distillery, its warehouse, and bottling shop. He became the president of the distillery in 1921 and died in 1959.

    This is the best bourbon I’ve ever had. The price tag may scare some off a few people but a bottle will last a while. It’s not the kind of stuff you’d put away in large quantities at one time. I’m amazed at how many people have never heard of it.

    Not many people know there are 8 different horses on top of the cork. A different horse for each letter of BLANTONS. Yes, there are two different Ns.
