Blanton’s Silver is a bourbon distilled at the Buffalo Trace Distillery, and it’s one of the most luxurious whiskeys out there. It’s aged in new American white oak barrels and bottled at 90 proof (45% alcohol by volume). The result is a complex, smooth whiskey with notes of orange peel, caramel, and vanilla.
This bourbon is named after Albert Blanton, who owned the distillery between 1936 and 1964. He was also responsible for introducing Blanton’s as a brand name—before then, it was just known as “Buffalo Trace.”
Taste and Properties
The taste of this bourbon is sweet, with notes of vanilla and caramel coming through when you smell it. The flavor starts off sweet but then quickly turns spicy, with hints of cinnamon and clove coming through on your tongue. You can also detect hints of apple or pear in there somewhere—something about those ingredients just seems so perfect together!
Blanton’s Silver is a rare whiskey, as it is the only one that is not produced at the distillery. The distillery is located in Frankfort, Kentucky, and it is one of the oldest distilleries in the country. It was built in 1874 by Albert Blanton, who was a Bourbon enthusiast.
The whiskey itself has been distilled using a copper still that has been used since 1870, and it was named after his son William. It is made from corn, barley, and rye, which are all aged in charred oak barrels for at least ten years.
