Blanton’s Gold Bourbon Review
Distillery: Buffalo Trace
Type: Straight Bourbon/Single Barrel bourbon
Nose: caramel, brown butter, oak, tobacco
Flavor: caramel chews, leather, honeyed oak, black pepper, roasted poblano pepper, vanilla beans, mild tobacco
Finish: powerful with a nice, tapered, full bodied heat. A slight aspartame trace lingered after a few moments.
Caramel Explosion! Literally a spicy, caramel Hiroshima that will level your preconceived notions of Original Blanton’s single barrel. Pleasant oak levels with charred poblano pepper notes.
Pairings: I would recommend this with grilled poblano stuffed with copious amounts of cheddar and jack cheese and crumbled sausage. Or Caramel.....All the caramel!!!!
