Broken Barrel Small Batch Bourbon Review [In Depth]
Warehouse H Book By Dominic Guglielmi
I'm writing about a book about Blanton's...really
You may know him as the guy with one of the largest Blanton’s collections on the planet. It’s not just the normal stuff, but also all the super rare releases over the decades and all over the world. He has a website and is on various social media platforms showing off his stuff: bottles, accessories, and other Blanton’s related stuff.
- The history of bourbon, from the beginning, to its decline, to the boom
- the history of the distillery (including before it became Buffalo Trace)
- the many people involved in bourbon and the eventual creation of Blanton’s
- details on most (but not all) of the releases over the years
What I like about Warehouse H (the book)
A wonderful history lesson
Before reading this book, I already had a great appreciation for old Blanton’s. I loved drinking them too (gasp! Yes I actually opened and drank those bottles). As I did and wrote my reviews, I always wondered what the distillery was called in the 80s and 90s that made the magical nectar, and turns out that it’s not that straightforward. Read the book to learn more about that, because it delivers on the history. This book has made me more knowledgeable and appreciate Blanton’s more, even though I continue to generally not be enamored with how modern versions drink.
The writing style and tone make it fun to read
The photos are very cool
What I think could be improved
I want more photos
A shout out would have been amazing
I have far too much fun writing about whiskey and singlehandedly running The Whiskey Shelf to bring you independent, honest, and useful reviews, comparisons, and more. I’m proudly Asian American and can speak Cantonese, Mandarin, and some Japanese.There are no sponsors, no media companies, and no nonsense. Support The Whiskey Shelf by Buying Me A Shot.
