Blantons Single Barrel Red Takara Japanese Edition Bourbon Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Blantons Single Barrel Red Takara Japanese Edition Bourbon Whiskey

In the winter of 1881, Albert Bacon Blanton was born on a farm situated just outside of Frankfort, Kentucky. At the age of 16, Blanton began working at the Old Fire Copper Distillery (often abbreviated O.F.C. Distillery) as an office boy. Over the next few years, Blanton reportedly worked in every department at the distillery. By the age of 20, he was appointed the superintendent of O.F.C, and worked there until his retirement in 1952.Much like his mentor, E.H. Taylor, Blanton was a traditional bourbon aristocrat, wedded to the production of Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. Blanton identified a certain section of Warehouse H at his distillery, which he believed was the best for aging bourbon, and would personally select individual barrels from the section to bottle for his own private reserve.Today, Blantons Original Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey is still aged in the same section of Warehouse H as Blantons Private Reserve was over 50 years ago. Made from a unique mash bill of corn, rye, and malted barley, this expression is made exclusively for the Japanese market. The Single Barrel Takara Red is similar to the Original Single Barrel Bourbon, with one key difference: its aged for an additional 2 years, making this 8-year-old into a refined and complex spirit.
