Whisky Reviews for Blanton's Straight from the Barrel

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.75 points

  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Had this dram first during a blind taste event (Proef Olympics Ledendag 2) as the 6th dram (after the welcome dram), and later on re-evaluated a bit i had left in the sample bottle.

    initially quite heavy on the alcohol in the nose. with some time to breath it open it somewhat more and you get this distinct american style whiskey. quite sweet with big vanilla tones. 

    on the taste some sweet candy cotton, vanilla, burned wood and quite some brown spices and some leather.

    the finish is long and warming with dark chocolate and coffee.
