Created for exceptional smoothness and a clean finish, this bourbon is made with a sour mash of corn, rye and malted barley before maturing in American White Oak casks. The nose is powerful and dry with honey, rye, dried fruits, vanilla and chocolate. The palate is full and rich with sharp apricot notes alongside butter, pepper, honey and oak. The finish is long with toffee apples developing to pecan and caramel.
Produced exclusively for the Japanese export market at 80 proof, Blanton's Black Label is one of the rarest bourbon whiskeys in the world. Remarkably similar to the green-labeled Special Reserve, the main difference is an 8-year minimum aged barrel selection process (as opposed to the standard 6), which produces a more complex, robust, and refined whiskey tasting experience. Like the Takara Red edition, the Black Label is a statement piece for any serious bourbon collector and a must-try for any keen Blanton's enthusiast.
Crafted for the Japanese market, this Blanton's expression is made with Buffalo Trace high-rye mash #2. Aged 8 years in new charred American oak, it's bottled at 80 proof.
There's caramel, vanilla, apple, cherry, dark sugar, and plenty of oak making itself known on the nose. Vanilla and fruit are on the palate with oaky undertones and a pleasant sweetness throughout. The medium finish is smooth and well-rounded with lingering vanilla.

Due to Blanton’s sensitive wax seal, minor leaks or wax damage may occur occasionally during transit. Due to the recent high temperatures, although rare the wax seal may crack, whiskey can leak onto the cap and cause minor discoloration or the lid may slightly rise due to the heat and pressure. THIS IS NOT GROUNDS FOR A REPLACEMENT regardless if this is a gift. Our protection plan will only provide a partial discount at our discretion depending on the volume of leakage or damage. NO REFUNDS OR REPLACEMENTS WILL BE OFFERED.
