Produced exclusively for the Japanese export market at 93 proof, Blanton's Takara Red Edition Single Barrel is one of the most elusive, hard-to-find bourbon whiskeys in the world. Striking a similar resemblance to the Original Single Barrel, the Takara Red Edition undergoes an 8-year minimum aged barrel selection process (as opposed to the standard 6), which produces a more complex, robust, and refined tasting experience.
No collection is complete without this stunningly rare statement piece and is an absolute essential for any serious fan of Blanton's.
Colour: Warm maple.
Nose: The aroma is deep and powerful with vanilla, chocolate fudge, and cherry pipe tobacco.
Taste: The palate is a deeper and richer version of the core Blanton’s with creamy notes of brown butter and clove that open up to marmalade, toffee, and wild honey.
Finish: The finish is long with peaches and cream.
"The Blanton’s Single Barrel Red Takara Japanese Edition is an exceptional bourbon that showcases a beautiful balance of sweet and spicy flavors. The aroma is inviting, the flavor is rich and complex, and the finish leaves a lasting impression. This bourbon is a true treat for the senses." - Thewhiskylady.net
"... While maintaining the familiar flavors that Blanton’s is known for, what truly sets Takara Red apart is its intensified wood and oak notes on the nose resulting from added aging, accompanied by a delightful sweetness on the palate." - Dram Japan
