Blanton's Special

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!)

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Reviews for Blanton's Special Reserve
Smooth and tasty
Always one my favourite go to bourbons. Extremely smooth and mellow. It's unfortunate the price has increased 5 fold in recent times.

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!

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.
