Blanton's Straight from the Barrel Bourbon Whiskey (700ml)
Blanton's first Single Barrel release was in 1984 and was named after Colonel Albert Bacon Blanton, who in 1901 at the age of twenty became superintendent of the distillery. Blanton's latest 'Straight from the Barrel' collection is currently on offer only in international and duty free markets. A small number of bottles from barrel No.142 have just arrived in Australia.
