A fun novelty to try a glass if you get a chance, but save your money to buy one of the other international versions - either Blanton's Gold or Blanton's Straight from the Barrel. At just 80 proof, I can see how this would be a great line extension to introduce people to the Blanton's brand. I understand the concept is to sell this in foreign markets where the average consumer may prefer a lower proof bourbon. That being said, Blanton’s Original Single Barrel at 93 proof is only 13 proof higher, but boy does that extra bit of proof make a world of difference. And while I could see this being a great bourbon to use to make cocktails. Interestingly enough, the Blanton’s website recommends that this is best served on ice or in a cocktail. While I didn’t mix a cocktail with this, I did add an ice cube after my tasting to see why they recommended this method. I have to say that an ice cube utterly destroyed any light flavors in the palate and made the nose almost nonexistent. Even for a new bourbon drinker, I’d highly recommend not adding ice to this bourbon!

Fan of the Green

Always have been a Blantons fanatic, but this was my first time trying the Green label. Great buying experience & loved the whiskey too.

Blanton's is the best!

Loved the Single Barrel, so decided to try this one out and can't compliment it enough. Best price I found was through Bourbon Central & received it very quickly. Recommend this shop.
