Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon
With its (literally) trademarked stopper and Faberge egg-esque bottling, Blanton's is perhaps the most recognizable bottle of bourbon on the shelf. More importantly, it remains a tried and true choice, whether to introduce a friend with little bourbon or whiskey experience to the good stuff, or simply to enjoy a classic for around the home sipping from time to time. The bourbon offers a spicy and vanilla-tinged nose. You'll notice the influence of rye throughout the tasting experience, including a relatively long, spicy finish.
