today's choice is from across the pond.
Bulleit Bourbon is inspired by the whiskey pioneered by Augustus Bulleit over 150 years ago. Only ingredients of the very highest quality are used. The subtlety and complexity of Bulleit Bourbon come from its unique blend of rye, corn, and barley malt, along with special strains of yeast and pure Kentucky limestone filtered water. Due to its especially high rye content, Bulleit Bourbon has a bold, spicy character with a finish that's distinctively clean and smooth.
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.
