General remarks about Blanton's: this bourbon is elusive, yet familiar. Each glass has the comforting characteristics of the previous; yet, new fragrances arise each time that are a bit surprising.

For this review, it had been about 3 weeks since my last glass of Blanton's. I had just had a ham and pickle wrap with fresh raspberries on the side.

Nose: cedar, definitely 'woody'-- surprising-- since I normally get whiffs of vanilla and bananas--not this time. Tricky little devil I tell you.

Palate: A rush of cinnamon, banana, spicy, sweet. Dare I say warm apple pie, sans much apple?

Finish: Again, cinnamon. heat.

Final remarks: In the past I have found Blanton's to be a tad sweet for me, but I rather enjoyed it this time. Definitely keeping it around now that cooler weather is coming.
