Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey Reviews
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Rich and spicy, with warming notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, and crème brûlée topped with Demerara sugar. Hints of dried apricot, grape and almond, too.
Palate: Good spicy kick of rye first up, then softer notes of dried fruit and sweet spice follow. Toasty and nutty, with enough fruitiness to soften out the edges.
Finish: Well-balanced mix of sweet spice and warming rye.

Nicely rounded bourbon, sweet on the tongue with a strong spicy finish. The rye gives it its spicy/oaky finish which isn't to everyone's taste but it's not overwhelming. Over ice or with a small drizzle of Coke it's very pleasant. Not bad at all, but for the money there are better in my opinion.
Similar to Jack but a little more refined. Hard to drink on it's own due to a strong after burn, but the initial taste is good and full of wood smoke. Very pleasant in coke and ice!
My favourite bourbon. It''s such a lovely and vibrant experience, with a high rye kick that leaves a positive aftertaste.
I watered this down a bit - for me the extra alcohol (in anything over 40%) makes it harder to taste the drink. Once I''d added a dash of water this really opened up for me. The rye is definitely to the fore and I''m a big fan of rye so this is a good thing (I will be trying their ''95'' rye for sure). For me there''s fruit on the nose and hints of pineapple on the finish. This is worth having in your collection if you like American whiskies. It''s probably better value than many of the same price bracket single malt scotches.
Love this Bourbon. Neat it has a lovely spicyness that i prefer. The very first bottle I opened was on my wedding day, what a great day that turned out to be. Went and bought another along with their Rye Whiskey for Xmas sipping. Go get some now, you know you wanna
Pleasantly surprised by this after hearing a few less than glowing reports about Bulleit Bourbon. I particularly enjoyed it after adding a few mls of water - very smooth and very tasty, and for the price it is very hard to beat. I''m sure there are better bourbons, but I''d definitely recommend having a bottle of this handy as a daily pour.
Great for mixing but for a bit more one can upgrade to Eagle Rare which is more versatile for both sipping and mixing. Bulleit is a darn good whiskey though, and is great to have around for guests and/or parties where you want a higher quality bourbon but don''t want to break your bank. It is superior -- although definitely different -- to Maker''s Mark but not quite as nuanced as some of the others in that price range.
Absolutely love this. I you love Balvenie whisky then you will adore this bourbon. Perfect just over ice.
