Released in April 2016, Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength is made from the same high-rye mash bill as the original expression. The barrels selected were combined into a single batch for bottling at Stitzel-Weller in Louisville, Kentucky. As the name implies, this version is uncut and unfiltered straight from the barrel. Each batch will vary in ABV, ranging between 118 and 125 proof.

Tasting Notes

"Starting with a warm toasted-marshmallow and oak scent, this creamy whiskey's heat comes with lots of pepper. The taste isn't any different: peppery and delightful, hot, and full of dark stone fruit. Fennel and anise hang out on the back end with a pleasant acidity. This is a whiskey to sip and enjoy as it develops."
