Buffalo Trace Single Barrel

Kentucky Straight Bourbons

Blanton’s Single Barrel

93 Proof “Rye Recipe”

Kentucky Straight Bourbon


The Original Single Barrel Bourbon

Winner of 5 Gold in International spirits competition in the last 5 years


Nose:- The nose is very deep and satisfying.


Taste:- The taste has a masterful start with powerful dry vanilla notes in perfect harmony with hints of honey amid the strong caramel. The long, creamy caramel holds the fort until some late soft peppers arrive to spice things up.


The underlying dryness amid the spice and honey really makes for bourbon that should suit all tastes and one to keep the discerning whiskey drinker almost purring with delight.
