Taken from the center-cut or middle sections of the famous Warehouse H, Blanton’s Original Single Barrel was once designated for ambassadors, dignitaries, and Colonel Blanton’s family and friends. Today, everyone has access to the world’s first single barrel bourbon.
The taste profile is sweet, with notes of citrus and oak. The creamy vanilla nose is teased with caramel and butterscotch, all underscored by familiar baking spices such as clove, nutmeg, or cinnamon. Blanton’s Original set the standard for single barrel bourbons in 1984. Best served neat or on the rocks.
Bottle Size: 750ml

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.
In the winter of 1881, Albert Bacon Blanton was born on a farm situated just outside of Frankfort, Kentucky. At the age of 16, Blanton began working at the Old Fire Copper Distillery (often abbreviated O.F.C. Distillery) as an office boy. Over the next few years, Blanton reportedly worked in every department at the distillery. By the age of 20, he was appointed the superintendent of O.F.C, and worked there until his retirement in 1952.
Much like his mentor, E.H. Taylor, Blanton was a traditional bourbon aristocrat, wedded to the production of Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. Blanton identified a certain section of Warehouse H at his distillery, which he believed was the best for aging bourbon, and would personally select individual barrels from the section to bottle for his own private reserve.
Today, Blanton's Original Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey is still aged in the same section of Warehouse H as Blanton's Private Reserve was over 50 years ago. Made from the high-rye Buffalo Trace mash bill of corn, rye, and malted barley.
Blanton’s is a bourbon whiskey which is produced and marketed by the Sazerac Company. It is distilled in Frankfort, Kentucky at the Buffalo Trace Distillery.
The Blanton’s brand was launched in 1984 under the guidance of the distillery’s master distiller Elmer T. Lee, as the first modern bourbon marketed as a single barrel bourbon. The original brand name was “Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon.” The barrels are dumped by hand without using machinery. There are eight different stopper designs, each with a different letter of the alphabet molded into it and topped with a figurine of a racehorse and jockey. When placed in order, spelling “B L A N T O N’ S”, the horse and jockey’s poses display eight different scenes of a horse race, from standing at the gate, to crossing the finish line with a win.

This was my second shipment of Blanton’s and I wasn’t disappointed. Well packaged and no leakage!
I have Blanton’s!
After looking in several local liquor stores and not finding Blanton’s, or, if I did the price was inconsistent, I ordered from Online Liquor and had two bottles in a couple of days. Couldn’t be easier and a very good price. I Love the hint of caramel notes I pick up from this exquisite bourbon.
Package arrived very quickly and was in perfect condition. Thank you!
Great company to do business with. Good prices, selection and good shipping. Buy with confidence.
High end bourbons are hard to come by in the area we live. Online Liquor has been a great source. Reasonable prices and shipping has gone well. Thank you.
