More than 6 varieties of Blanton's are available :) .....
All Straight Bourbon actually already is a “single” whiskey such as a single malt, because it was never blended with neutral alcohol.
The whiskey also comes from a single distillery. The distillers in Kentucky came up with the idea to name their special whiskeys: Single Barrel, Small Batch Bourbon and Small Scale Bourbon.
In Single Barrel Bourbons such as this Blanton’s Special Reserve, each barrel of Bourbon is different, therefore causing the whiskey inside of it to ripen slightly differently. The location of the barrel of whiskey in the warehouse also influences the ripening process.
The location of the barrel of whiskey in the warehouse also influences the ripening process..... so they can make over 6 beautiful varieties of whiskeys.....
The barrels with the highest quality whiskey, the ones with much higher quality than average, are located in the middle of the warehouse. This whiskey is often ripened longer to get even better. Each barrel is then bottled separately, making each bottle a unique product. At Blanton’s, the number of the warehouse and the row and corresponding number of the barrel the whiskey ripened in are mentioned.
