My first Blanton's experience came at a restaurant with a decent whiskey list. I ordered it with some ice..which may have been rash..it had a light body..lighter than I expected. The taste was sweetish and pleasant (sorry, I did not take notes). Is Blanton's lighter in taste than other bourbons or was this possibly a cut drink? I hope not, it cost $8.00, as my wife pointed out on the check.
