Name: Blanton’s

Bottled By: Sazerac

ABV: 46.5%

Proof: 93

blantons-bourbon-reviewAh. Now here is a whiskey that is finally deserving of its bottle. Rich and aromatic, smooth as honey and a definite crowd pleaser.

Blanton’s is a must on my bar, but I usually slap the hands of those who actually try to reach for it. This one is for me and I am highly unlikely to share it. The flavor is rich, and the rewards richer, but you can be middle-class and still afford to drink it.

The best part of this whiskey is the little horse cork, which I tend to save after I use the bottle to collect rain for the purposes of watering the cats.

If you are standing in the liquor store with one hand on this and the other hand on a mainstream brand at the same price, go with Blanton’s.

You will not be disappointed.
