Bulleit "Frontier" Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)
*Top 50 Spirits 2013 & Best Buy* Golden and bright, this straight bourbon whiskey is one of the most versatile around. Though it starts with a sweet flavor profile with hints of vanilla and cookie dough, it finishes supple and dry, with notes of leather, black tea and cinnamon. Bracing alcohol levels.
Soft, elegant, and nicely rounded, with honeyed orchard fruit and gentle spice on a bed of vanilla and caramel. Very versatile; a pleasing, unchallenging bourbon to suit most moods and situations. I actually like it better than the new, older 10 year old expression (reviewed in this issue), because it is so beautifully balanced. (Vol. 22, #2)
Bulleit has a high rye content, and you can smell it coming through in fresh-milled grain and mint. Bright corn appears in the mouth, spiced by the rye and dried by barrel wood. There's a tenacious and sweet finish, which is the sweetest part of the experience.
*Gold Medal - 2012 San Francisco World Spirits Competition* Bulleit is owned by a small family in Lawrenceburg. This bottling has been aged seven years and has a high rye component in the mash which gives the bourbon a rich, oak aroma with hints of vanilla. It is made in small batches and is very, very well balanced! Our staff had the wonderful opportunity to be educated by Tom Bulleit. It is always sure a pleasure to have the creators of these fantastic produces at our stores. This is one the staff takes home!
