I'm going to crack open my bottle of Blanton's in two weeks, I'll post back with my impressions.
Interesting bourbon. The nose makes you think it's 120 proof when it's not - nothing interesting. The taste is a bit all over the place - keeps going back and forth between strong alcohol and the rich deep sweetness that you expect from a good bourbon. It's a bit strange but in the end you end up spending several minutes processing the complex notes that remain on your tongue and gums. Quite enjoyable!

I am not a bourbon or whiskey guy but my sister had me try Jamesons Stout and it was pretty good.

The picture is her whiskey/bourbon cabinet.

Your sister has good taste!

In other news, my Dad was able to find three bottles up in CT that are hard to find here in Florida, so in a week, I'll be adding a bottle of Blanton's, Weller Antique 107, and Elijah Craig Barrel Proof B19 batch in my hands. Right now, I'm sipping on some Whistlepig Piggyback (felt like something sweeter after starting with some Woodford Double-Oaked, but I'll finish up with some Eagle Rare.

I was able to get a barrel select of the Woodford Double-Oaked for my dad as a surprise; he really likes the bitter and coffee notes.
