    Watts, this Blanton's SFTB has. I think that apart from Peat Whiskeys I really have trouble with Whiskey / Bourbons too alcoholic and spicy.
    • Nose
      A sparkling nose, his wriggle in my nostrils. It is clearly more powerful than the Single Barrel Gold Edition. It is also more fruity too (orange, mango). It contains vanilla, sugar and even cinnamon. He is getting closer to some "single malt", less bourbon than his "brother".
    • Taste
      Attack rather sharp and very "dark". Poorly balanced, we are clearly on woody notes (Oak) and spicy (clove). Behind all this violence, some notes of honey and vanilla try to stand out.
    • Finish
      Medium but very powerful on the spices first and then it gradually became more pleasant notes like pastry cream and vanilla.
