97 points Robert Parker: "Smoky, woodsy, caramelized flavors of brown sugar, honey and maple syrup include a hint of wood. With a light to medium amber color, a full-bodied, gorgeously textured, fleshy, broad, savory mouthfeel, and no harshness, this is either a brilliant master blend or a bourbon with some serious age. If the latter is the case, they should promote that fact on the label. Velvety, opulent and stunningly complex, this is one of the most complex of the Kentucky bourbons I tasted. (May 2013)"

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Bold and well structured, this Bourbon features warming vanilla and caramel accented by orange peel, stone fruit and a dry baking-spice finish. Sip it with a chunk of ice, or mix up a round of juleps. The trademark round, faceted bottle with the horse-topped cork is perfect for Derby Day. (Sep 2014)"

Wine Spectator: "(style: classic - sweet corn and vanilla) Custard, pepper, orange peel and grassy rye fill the nose. In the mouth, it's a breakneck ride: an initial rush of dry corn and grassy rye, a broad wave of sweeter corn in the middle, and a finish of sugar and rough spearmint. One of the first specialty Bourbons, and still one of the best. 93 proof. (1/31/12)"

Colonel Albert B. Blanton first bottled his private reserve Bourbon nearly a century ago. And that's the way Blanton is bottled today. A Bourbon's peak maturity varies from barrel to barrel. And only a master distiller can determine the exact moment the whiskey has extracted enough flavor from the wood. Thus he vigilantly monitors each barrel until it's aged to perfection and is deemed worthy of the Blanton label.
