I advice you to buy a bottle of Blanton's Original Single Barrel. First, you will just be astonished about the bottle. You'll just hold it and stare it for a moment.
After you taste Blanton's Original, you will still feel amazed. For a brief moment I felt like Bret Maverick (from the original Maverick TV series) about the whole experience. Classy stuff: the bottle design, the content, everything.
The one I'm reviewing is Blanton's Original Single Barrel 41. Dated 4-10-2013, bottle number 81. And I love it. And for this price, I'd even settle only for the empty bottle, it's just that cool.
Nose: Hot spices start the show. Pleasantly continues with lingering waxy honey and oranges and hints of caramel.
Taste: Oranges and hints of very watery melon. Spices and vanilla complete the nice palate.
Finish: Spicy hot and bitter and dry. Chili with dark chocolate and oak.
Balance: Great stuff, nice mix of hot spices and lingering sweetness! Warehouse H delivers!
