[Japanese Release] Blanton's Straight From The Barrel is a export only, unfiltered, and uncut Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey produced at the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, KY. Shortly after Age International was formed in 1983 the Blanton's brand was introduced and was the first to be marketed as a "Single Barrel Bourbon." Albert B. Blanton was instrumental in keeping the distillery alive throughout prohibition and numerous ownership changes. Not only was the distillery named after him prior to the acquisition by Age International but he was also responsible for hiring Elmer T. Lee. Elmer retired the following year after Blanton's was released and is credited with the jockey and racehorse stopper design. Blanton's Black was developed exclusively for the Japanese market and is not sold inside the United States. Bottled at 80 Proof and aged about 8 years.

Country: United States

Whilst there are several strains of native grape varietals in the United States, it was the introduction of the European species which prompted the country to begin producing wines on a large scale. Over the past few centuries, experimentation and cross-breeding has produced great successes in regards to the quality and suitability of the fruit grown in states such as California, Oregon, Washington and New York, and the past few decades have seen New World wines from the United States reach much higher standards. Arguably the finest United States wines have always come out of California, where the climate and terrroir is most suitable for fine wine production. The masterful blending of classic grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, amongst others including Syrah and Chardonnay, have had world beating results in recent years, prompting many to suggest that there has never been a better time for buying and drinking United States wines.

I found this version of Blanton's to have a very astringent smell and taste. I think it may have something to do with it only being 80 proof. I wanted it to be as good or better than the U.S. version of Blanton's. I guess the Japanese taste profile is much different than the American's.

I have also gone through a bottle of the Gold Label which I felt was better than the Original Single Barrel/U.S. version.

I would suggest that anyone interested in a different version of Blanton's, spring for the Gold Edition and skip the Black Label.
