Bulleit // Kentucky, USA
The Bulleit label, revived by Tom Bulleit, was first produced for friends and family by Augustus Bulleit in the early 1800s. While Augustus never sold his product, Tom (working with Four Roses) first started producing his version of this "Frontier Whiskey" around 1987. With a mash bill of 68% corn, 28% rye, 4% malted barley, this is a high-rye Kentucky straight bourbon. Bottled at 90 proof.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"Nice nose with oak, still subtle hints of corn, vanilla and cinnamon. Taste is rye spice with burnt sugar, some tobacco and more rye. Medium finish where the cinnamon and rye in the mash bill come through again."
