Bulleit Bourbon Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Oaky, smoky, and smooth.

    Bulleit Bourbon is russet in color with a rich, oaky aroma. The dry, clean flavor is mellow and smooth, not hot in the throat. This 90 proof Kentucky bourbon delivers a wonderfully complex taste with hints of vanilla and honey and a long smoky finish.
  • Rating by F. Paul Pacult (Spirit Journal)

     Superb - A highly recommended distilled spirit whose attributes, in the opinion of the author, are of exemplary quality and character within the established standards of its category. An outstanding product which is worthy of a search. (September, 2002)  
  • Tasting Notes from Beverage Tasting Institute (Chicago)

    Pale copper color. Sweet walnut fudge nose. A supple entry leads to a medium-bodied palate displaying dry caramel, brown spice notes, and a dash of warming alcohol on the long, smooth finish. A refreshing, easy-drinking bourbon style. 90 points (Exceptional) January, 2002

    A great, almost eccentric bourbon. The individual who wrote here about it being akin to a funky Mickey Rourke was, for my tastes, bang on the money:)

    Just picked this up after trying many bourbons, and I think I''ve found my drink. I would pay more than I did but regardless of price, this is a very very nice drink. Subtle, sleek, and very Moorish, perfect.

    simply the best. I tried it first on holiday in Vancouver. I love that kick and a little is enough at a time.

    Nose: Corn, spice, almost cinnamony. Palate: Melange of flavors, deeper than the nose. Subtle alcohol, vanilla, honey, corn, a touch of rye. Finish: Medium length, excellent and clean. Though I sometimes enjoy a mouth-coating bourbon like Maker's Mark, this finish is much more elegant. Excellent bourbon!

    Intense, sweet and spicy. Hardly any alcohol bite. Fairly complex for a bourbon of this class. I'd say it's like a more concentrated version of Four Roses, which isn't a coincidence as it's produced by them. This one really works fine over an ice cube or two - neat it's just a little too sweet for me. In this price range, perhaps the best American whiskey I've had so far.

    A great whiskey for the beginner due to its drinking ease and smooth flavour. Years ago this was one of my first bourbon purchases to be consumed sans mixer and I never looked back.

    When Bulleit is combined with a decent cola it has this really soapy taste which although doesn't sound like something you'd want to drink is absolutely delicious. I've tried an awful lot of different bourbons straight up and mixed and this is still hands down my favorite combnation, only Bulleit seems to have this unique flavour though, next best is probably buffalo trace. 1 & a half shots to a standard whiskey tumbler of coke.

    not a bad drink a little to sweet for me.

  • 4 May 2012

    Nice new edition to collection. Nice over ice - no need for coke :).Looking fwd to Jim Beam's Devil's cut.

    Smooth, rich, satisfying, complex, ruggedly elegant, elegantly rugged,I could go on and on...It's just a great marriage of contrasts meshing into a seamless yet brutally funky whole. Think Mickey Rourke in "Barfly".

    A lovely, easy drinkable bourbon with a great rye edge.

  • 1 April 2011

    The first bourbon I ever tasted, and a fine introduction it was too. Very drinkable, smooth, with a creamy and nutty flavour.

  • 19 July 2010

    This is bourbon with a good mix of aromas and flavours. It is easy to like, equally easy to drink and easy on the pocket as well. Bulleit may not be quite as complex as some higher-priced bourbons, but can stand amongst them as a good, solid drink with its own character.

  • 15 June 2010

    really nice, especially at the special offer price, probably has the edge over makers mark and my previous favourite woodford reserve

    Tried this for the first time at the weekend at Littlecote House in Oxford. My husband and I are smitten, can't think of anything we'd rather be drinking from now on: Fantastic.Tracey

    My favorite bourbon at a working man's price. Very smooth and does magic on the nose. Smell of charred oak and warm vanilla. This is one drink I always want to have to warm up on.

  • 15 February 2010

    Very nice for the price. Probably my favourite easy drinking Bourbon at the moment.Also great for cooking. Used it to make the sauce for the steaks, tasted great!
