    A stylish bourbon bottle
    with various flavors and aromas as you have never experienced before, Blanton's
    Original is a true highlight in its class
    • Nose
      Delicate aromas of grain, spices and citrus fruits like oranges with hints of caramel and vanilla
    • Taste
      A full and creamy taste of raisins and vanilla notes include caramel, ripe fruit and flowers. Touch of spice

      Beautiful balanced aftertaste of vanilla, honey and citrus

    Blanton's Mignonnette Original B13067093YN 46.5%
    Not much surprise: the recipe is proven.
    • Nose
      A playful, rather chemical nose: lemon, vanilla, sweet at the limit of caramel (do not forget about the fire) and clearly solvent or stain remover (we could almost identify the brand: K2R?)
    • Taste
      Rather alcoholic, the mouth is counterbalanced by a creamy side, quite a heavy mixture of molasses, vanilla and lemon. Wood in the finish recalls the barrel, anyway.
    • Finish
      Long enough: 3 to 4 seconds. Sugar.

    The bourbon country is like the 2013 weather, there is no need to open its window to know what to expect.
    • Nose
      Welcome to bourbon country, where the woody fields invaded by vanilla shine through layers of nail polish.
    • Taste
      In this wonderful world, green woods and pods rub shoulders to form a very sweet whole.
    • Finish
      As everywhere in the country of Bourbon, nothing changes. Wood and vanilla are in harmony and nobody will disturb them.
