Blanton’s Straight From The Barrel

63,65% ABV

Vintage 2014

Virgin American Oak casks

Nose : franc, precious and very fragrant. Grilled oak, old rum, clove, vanilla, pineapple, juicy apricots, alcohol and wood paint, honey melted, maple syrup, sawdust, mushrooms, lots of oranges and strawberry candies.

Palate : intense, pungent and strong and but a first sip it becomes softer and syrupy… Notes of jalapeños pepper, hot chocolate, mandarin, vanilla, oak, maple syrup or corn syrup.

Final : very long and with caramel, lemon curd, pepper, cinnamon, fruit juice, dry oak, honey and cane sugar syrup.

Comments : it is a very pleasant and intense bourbon that I appreciate very much… Very fruity and spicy. It is very similar to the original Blanton’s at 46% but with more punch and a longer aftertaste ! I love the expressions of melting with punch, complexity and tasty notes like this one. It seems very authentic !

Hi, my name is Nicolas Läderach, I live in France (Haute- Savoie). I was born in 1986 in Geneva/Switzerland. My love story with whisky started at the age of 27. I just love scotch whisky and I'm really love discovering new profiles/tastes to enjoy and analyse flavours... I think that a whisky journey is a lot of fun and learnings, but mostly lots of fun. Now I want to expand my knowledges and my passion by trying more and more worlwide stuff. To conclude, please don't forget that "Whisky is for drinking " Santé Cheers Slainte Kanpaï ..You can also find me on Instagram @nicowhiskies
