Who'da thunk it? I'm early for a change. Surprise, surprise!
I decided to go with Blanton's this month for a few of reasons. One, it hasn't been BOTM in a while. Two, my brother/family presented me a bottle for my birthday. Three, I recently had the chance to sample some Blanton's at a tasting. FWIW, the tasting I mention, is a "guys" weekly spirits/cigars/hors d'oeuvres affair, hosted by a place near where I live. I haven't had Blanton's in a while, and sadly, I forgot how good it was. The samples I had a couple of weeks ago actually prompted me to open my birthday bottle. Darned good. As a side note here, Paul brought a bottle of Blanton's more than once to share at the gazebo for the Sampler and KBF. The bottles he brought were great. The samples I had, and the bottle I opened are just as good.
Rather than bore y'all with any more of my ramblings about Blanton's, I thought I'd use Jeff's post from when Blanton's was the BOTM back in July of 07. Here ya' go. Have fun, and happy posting.
