|Name:||Blanton’s Gold Edition|
|Category:||Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey|
|Distillery:||Buffalo Trace Distillery|
|Cask Type:||American Oak|
Dry and vibrant, although the alcohol is hardly noticeable at all. A lot of dried fruits (especially red apples) along with nutmeg and cinnamon. Delicate hints of orange blossom and dry lemon cake. A wooden touch in the background.
Starts sweet and fruity with red fruits, apricots and honeyed raisins. But also a good portion of white pepper. Then very buttery. A chocolate cupcake with a fudge core. Again hints of oak in the back.
Long and a bit peppery. Leather, mint and macadamia nuts. Also some bitterness from the oak.
Indeed very smooth, but also pleasant complex and rich. The high strength blends in perfectly.
Score: 89 / 100
