With an amber color and golden reflection, the fragrance is lightly woody, emphasized by dried fruit, spices (cinnamon) and floral flavors (honeysuckle). The taste is vivid and elegant as well as it turns into fruit (plum) and spices (cloves).
The long aftertaste goes to vanilla, nuts, pecans and burnt wood. The Gold version of Blanton’s is the most accomplished of this great single barrel, made by Buffalo Trace distillery. The profile is complex, dried fruit and plums with spices.
