Oaky, smoky, and smooth.
Bulleit Bourbon is russet in colour with a rich, oaky aroma. The dry, clean flavour is mellow and smooth, not hot in the throat. This 90 proof (40% ABV) Kentucky bourbon delivers a wonderfully complex taste with hints of vanilla and honey and a long smoky finish.
All of these elements combine to form a unique, hand-crafted bourbon reminiscent of America's frontier heritage. One taste will release the frontier explorer in you.
The award winning bottle design reflects elements of the Frontier Age, with a unique flask design and raised glass lettering.
An intensely grainy bouquet. The palate entry is corny sweet and nearly honey-like; at midpalate the core flavor of sweet corn mash remains while tastes of buttered popcorn, brown sugar, and nougat expand. Finishes with a spurt of fire and lots of long, corny/grainy tastes. Should be part of every serious whiskey-lover’s collection.— P.P. (9/1/2006) — 90-95
Bulleit Bourbon is distilled and aged in small batches and stored in a single-story warehouse which reduces inconsistencies in the maturation process. Bulleit Bourbon is aged in American White Oak barrels that are flame charred, giving the bourbon some of its colour and flavour. It is aged not a drop less than 6 years, creating maturity and smoothness. The final, 90 proof product is formulated by mingling, not blending, two and sometimes three of the distillates to ensure consistency in the nose and taste.
