Blanton's Black Label Takara Single Barrel Bourbon
Blanton’s Black Label, a special Japanese exclusive bottled at 40% ABV rather than Original’s 46.5%. This is effectively the Japanese version of the export-only Green Label
Taken from the center of the venerable Warehouse H, Blantons was once designated for ambassadors, officials, and Colonel Blanton’s friends & family. Today, everyone has access to the world’s first single barrel bourbon.
Blantons Black Label Bourbon flavor profile is sweet with and oaky with hints of citrus. A creamy nose features hints of vanilla, caramel, orange and light chocolate. Blantons set the standard for bourbons. Best served neat or with a couple of rocks.
Blantons Black Bourbon is aged in Buffalo Trace's Warehouse H, the only metal-clad warehouse at the distillery, for 6-8 years. The warehouse was built by Albert B. Blanton a few years after prohibition. Because metal conducts heat more quickly than brick warehouses, it ages more rapidly compared to other rickhouses.
Every bottle of Blantons has one of 8 different stoppers since 1999. Each one with a horse and jockey at a different stage of finishing a horserace. The designs are all lettered so that a complete set laid out side by side will spell “Blantons.”
- We pack Blanton's very very well, but due to the high proof, large cork & stopper, and very thin wax, bottles can leak and wax can crack due to movement or temperature changes- No claim can be lodged against cap and/or seal failure or leakage in transit unless Route shipping protection is added to your order.

Driving down Ventura Blvd in Studio City in the 1960’s has something in common with today, Flask Fine Wine & Whisky- Flask first opened its doors to the public in 1962. Decades later and it still remains a respected fixture in the Los Angeles community.
