The nose is quite pungent and peppy with notes of marmalade and toasty oak. Here is a hint of smoke with a beautiful, creamy banana milkshake. The palate is quite full with notes of zesty orange, a hint of dried peel, a note of winter spice, a cigar box character and a touch of perfume. The finish is of medium-length with plenty of spice.
Medium amber in color, with gentle spiciness and sweet oak aromas. Mid-palate is smooth with tones of maple, oak, and nutmeg. Finish is long, dry, and satiny with a light toffee flavor.
Bulleit is bottled in an old-fashioned style bottle, there is a relatively high proportion of rye in the mashbill which proffers plenty of pep. This bourbon was awarded a Gold medal at the 2004 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
