Purchased at:
Info on this bottle:Bottled Sept 2006 Barrel 224
Nose:Sweet with a hint of spice.
Taste:Very smooth entry that maybe contradicts the 98 proof on the label. Sweetness on the initial entry that changes over to a mild to medium spice. Some oak presents itself towards the end.
Finish:Medium finish that depicts mild tannins and some oak at the finish.
Overall:For the price, I tend to avoid Blanton's Original. I couldn't resist picking up the Silver, Gold and SFTB for less than Original costs in the U.S. I believe the higher proof does Blanton's Silver justice and for only $30, it's a good pour.
