Blanton’s Gold Edition

Opening door 23 in the Drinks by the Dram Bourbon Advent Calendar  reveals a Blanton’s Gold Edition bottled at 51,5%. On the nose I find lots of sweet honey and fruit with flavours of red caramel apples, vanilla, raisins, all spice and ginger. Blackcurrant jam, orange marmalade, toast and a hint of salted butter. Next to all this sweetness are some fresh notes of mint, lemon and oranges.

Warm honey again on the palate with lemon and ginger notes combining with fruit cake and Turkish delight. Banana, red apple, plums, cassis, figs, chocolate chip cookies and cinnamon. It has a good strength to it and is balanced with a good length finish showing more and more the creamy vanilla, malty and cocoa powder notes. Like this one… Thanks for sharing a sample Drinks by the Dram!
