From the Buffalo Trace Website:
“From the time [Albert Bacon Blanton] was made company president in 1921 until his retirement in 1952, his Distillery expanded from 44 to 144 buildings to become the largest Distillery of its day. During that period Colonel Blanton created his very special and limited supply of bourbon – his private reserve – handpicked and stored in what now is known as the famous Warehouse H. Although Colonel Blanton died in the spring of 1959, his legacy lives. Introduced in 1984, Blanton’s namesake bourbon was the first ever Single Barrel Bourbon sold commercially. The Single Barrel Bourbon is the first of its kind.”

Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon Rating
Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon is nice for sure, but I can’t say that aging it in rickhouse H or anything else about it makes it better or different than many other bourbons you can find. While it’s sweet, fruity, woody, nutty, and spicy like everything you might want in a bourbon, at no point do I feel like it’s done exceptionaly well.
