In the winter of 1881, Albert Bacon Blanton was born into one of the first families of bourbon history. At the age of sixteen, he started work in the Distillery as an office boy and fast became a leading pioneer in the development of bourbon. From the time he was made company president in 1921 until his retirement in 1952, his Distillery expanded from 44 to 144 buildings to become the largest Distillery of its day. During that period Colonel Blanton created his very special and limited supply of bourbon - his private reserve - handpicked and stored in what now is known as the famous Warehouse H. Although Colonel Blanton died in the spring of 1959, his legacy lives. The Single Barrel Bourbon is the first of its kind.

Tasting notes
A deep, satisfying nose of nutmeg and spices. Powerful dry vanilla notes in harmony with hints of honey amid strong caramel and corn. A medium finish composed of returning corn and nutmeg flavors.

 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points (Apr 2014)
Rich and honey-tinged nose with aromas of orange zest, warm cherry pie, and sweet campfire smoke. Warm and robust on the palate with smooth, earthy flavors of honey-braised parsnips, cinnamon and dried cherry. A powerful, rich and lasting finish ensues with a delicate hint of smokiness. A profound whiskey.
