In a nutshell: A robust and full bodied, small batch Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey.
The lowdown: Bulleit Bourbon is a Kentucky Straight bourbon whiskey. It's medium amber in colour with a gentle spiciness and sweet oak aromas. The mid-palate is smooth with notes of maple, oak, and nutmeg while the finish is long, dry, and satiny with a light toffee flavour. Due to its especially high rye content, Bulleit Bourbon has a bold, spicy character with a finish that's distinctively clean and smooth.
In 1987, Thomas E. Bulleit, Jr., fulfilled a lifelong dream of reviving an old family bourbon recipe by starting the Bulleit Distilling Company. Inspired by his great-great-grandfather Augustus Bulleit, who made a high-rye whiskey between 1830-1860, Tom left a successful law practice and risked everything to experience life on the frontier. Today, we're not the only ones who are glad he did.
To this day, Bulleit Bourbon is distilled and aged in the Bulleit family tradition. High rye content gives it a bold, spicy character with a distinctively smooth, clean finish. Kentucky limestone-filtered water provides a foundation for the bourbon's character, while charred American oak barrels lend a smoky backbone.
