Blanton's Special Reserve

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Blanton's Special Reserve to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution, but until then, here are some alternatives:

Blanton's Special Bottling Note

Special Reserve is a lower strength single barrel bourbon from Blanton's. Each bottle is hand-filled, hand-labeled, hand-sealed and individually numbered.

Please Note: Unfortunately, the wax atop these Straight From The Barrel bottlings is currently prone to cracking. We're informed that this should be a short term problem, but please be aware when purchasing this tasty bourbon. (Don't worry, the delicious liquid inside won't be affected!)

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Spiced. Grainy sweetness. Buttery, fruity tang.

Palate: Light, balanced, gentle spices, toffee. Dried peels.

Finish: Spices, medium-length.

Blanton's Special Reserve Reviews

Great for a hot summer evening due to the lower alcohol content.

I honestly love this Special Reserve it has light body with a smooth finish. It was a pleasant surprise but needs to be enjoyed straight up. Water of any kind will destroy what little flavor is there. It is a good single barrel whiskey for a new to the game whiskey hunter. I feel it’s under rated definitely not as good as the gold or SFTB but it holds its own in my opinion. Cheers

Best I’ve ever had.

So smooth that I’ve dubbed it a breakfast whiskey.

Best bourbon I tried

Haven't tasted many bourbons but this is far ahead of anything I've tried.
It's a whisky that makes you go wow.

Something Special Indeed!

One of the best Bourbons, regardless of price! I've had the pleasure of tasting all 3 Blanton's Bourbons. I haven't been disappointed!

Take it for a ride!!

Simply one of the best I've tasted. I will be buying this one again for sure.

Good, but great like the Gold

After trying the spectacular Blanton's Gold last year, I plumped for the cheaper special reserve to see what you got for your money.

Unfortunately it was a minor disappointment, with the mouthfeel much more watery, a weaker flavour, less bite and a short finish.

That being said the great smell and arrival of the Gold was still present.

An above average whiskey, but I'd rather pay more for the Gold.

Smooth and silky. Definitely the best bourbon I've tasted.

My favorite

Great easy aroma without any ethanol smell.. you can just breath with your nose burried in the glass and you will have no acrid feeling. The taste is smooth, fresh, fruity.. you can really feel the sugary taste and you have no unpleasant aftertaste. I prefer it with one ice cube per each 2cl. For me the Blanton's 40% is the best choice at still reasonable price great for evening with friends or just relaxing and drinking after a hard day... :-)

Seriously though, I'm no connoisseur, and rarely drink Bourbon. But I have to say this is really nice stuff, it doesn't burn and it drinks real smooth. Tastes fantastic and is real well presented. Fantastic stuff.

It tastes like JD without coke, but in a nice bottle with a horse on.

This has a fruity aroma indeed. There's little heat from the alcohol. The flavor has less bite to it when compared to the Hancock's--another single barrel from Buffalo Trace--I tried before it. It is, though, smooth and with no bad qualities, other than it's somewhat bland compared to the Hancock's. The spice in the finish builds some with each sip. Karl

The Horse is running for the bourbon

In Kentucky we like a smooth dark silky bourbon that has a sweet finish. Blanton's is famous for this, thus the reason why they have made such an indelible mark on the Kentucky landscape. Worth the price for a cool afternoon in the early fall.

Very easy drinking.....

I know each barrel is different but I've had 3 bottles of this stuff and consitantly it was the "Lowland" of bourbon whiskeys, think Auchentoshan with a corn bite but same sweet subtle fade. Best Bourbon for non bourbon drinkers, very approchable.
