When I first tried Blanton's Original I was not taken with it, as the months have gone by and I have returned to try again and again it has developed into an awesome bourbon. Many people say the Woodford's is quintessential bourbon but you can give me Original over it everyday it does not do anything special but what it does it does well, the balance of this is an absolute treat. Fruity sweetness, dry oak, caramel and vanilla with a long finish, ten minutes after the last sip tonight I can still taste the vanilla and fruit.

Definately give this one a bit of time and you will be rewarded with a delicious bourbon. Hope the straight from the cask comes on as well as this, it was closed when freshly opened with a number of friends, 2 months on it has been left alone with only half a bottle left. I think I might just have a sniff tonight to check how it is developing.
