Blanton's is a brand of bourbon whiskey that is known for its distinctive bottle shape and cork stopper, which is shaped like a horse and rider. It is a single barrel bourbon, meaning that each bottle is produced from whiskey that comes from a single barrel, rather than a blend of barrels. Blanton's bourbon is made using a mash bill of corn, rye, and malted barley and is aged for at least six years. The aging process takes place in new, charred oak barrels, which give the whiskey its characteristic flavors of vanilla, caramel, and oak. Blanton's is often considered a high-end bourbon and is prized by whiskey enthusiasts for its smoothness and complexity. It is typically enjoyed neat or on the rocks, although it can also be used in cocktails like the Old Fashioned or the Manhattan. Blanton's also produces a range of other bourbon expressions, including a gold edition, a straight from the barrel edition, and a special reserve edition.
