The Details

In a Nutshell

Rye is a cornerstone of the standard Bulleit Bourbon recipe, and this mashbill is 95% rye.

Tasting Notes

Fresh cherry on the nose, spicy leather notes and vanilla too. Bold, spicey, followed by fresh fruits - peach, cherries and orange zest, aromatic spices return at the finish

Production Notes

Rye is a cornerstone of the standard Bulleit Bourbon recipe, however growing consumer demand for super-premium US whiskey and the trend for rye whiskey among mixologists lead to the development of a whiskey with a higher rye content so Bulleit went the whole hog and created this which has a mashbill of 95% rye and 5% malted barley. Crafted in small batches, using pure limestone-filtered water and charred American oak barrels for all of the colour, the charring also releases complex vanilla and caramel flavours which the alcohol draws from the wood contributing to the rich flavour. At 95% Bulleit Rye is intended to be the ultimate expression of a rye whiskey, when many rye whiskies are just 51%.

Producer - Bulleit Distillery

The first Bulleit Bourbon was produced by a bar owner in Louisville, Kentucky, named Augustus Bulleit. One day when transporting barrels to New Orleans Augustus disappeared and was never found.
