Packaged in an old-style bottle, Bulleit whiskey has developed a loyal following in the UK. The high rye content (around 30%) gives this bourbon a spicy kick.Tasting Notes (1)
Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
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.
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.
Well-balanced mix of sweet spice and warming rye.

After seeing a lot of good reviews of this I decided to get a bottle. I found it to be incredibly hot, far hotter than the other bourbons I've had in the 45-55% alcohol range. I couldn't detect any stand out flavours beyond the heat. To me it drank like a bottom-shelf bourbon with an alcoholic smack in the face.
Normally go for scotch but fancied something different. On my first glass, added an ice cube as seemed strong, enjoying. Might have another one!
Nose: Sweet Caramel, Banana Candy, Orange Zest, Vanilla, Wood. Palate: Caramel, Blood Orange, Pepper. Finish: Clingy, Spicy, smooth. 7/10 - good stuff.

After drinking the putrid whiskeys like Jim Beam and Jack Daniel’s (though the Single Barrel is great), I gave this a go. It’s dominated by its high rye spice, but underneath you will taste light vanilla oak and a hint of fruit citrus. More spice than sweet, the high rye giving a unique character smoother than you’d expect with a creamy mouthfeel. I’d say this has been in a barrel least four years. Plus at 45% vol better quality than most of the 40% vol muck on the market – you are getting good bag for your buck. You're getting a pretty good bourbon for your money. This was my first real dabble into the world of bourbon. Are there better out there? Yes, but in the £20-30 range I would say this is the best.
