Bulleit Barrel Strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml) (Elsewhere 55)

SKU #1306390 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 Look for a warm, concentrated caramel aroma and a relatively sweet palate that suggests cookie dough, vanilla bean, espresso and almond, with a concentrated hit of booze on the finish. Dilution with water smooths out flavors to sugar cookie and dulce de leche sprinkled with ground coffee bean. Limited edition. *Best of 2016* (KN)  (9/2016)

Whisky Advocate

 High rye is evident, with rounded baking spices up front, leather, muted caramel, vanilla, and a hint of tobacco. This ABV beast coasts with the warmth and richness of crème brûlée, toffee, cinnamon rock candy, fruit, and nutmeg. Oh wait, there‚Äôs more. Smoke kicks in toward the end with marshmallow undertones and more cinnamon, finishing strong with lasting spice. This is a cask strength sipper or a lovely bourbon on the rocks. (FM, Fall 2016)

K&L Notes

In what was once only available as a limited-edition bottling from the Bulleit Experience at the defunct Stitzel-Weller distillery in Kentucky, Diageo is now bringing Bulleit Barrel Strength to the metropolitan market! Bottled at 62.7% cask strength, this is a punchier, more powerful expression of Bulleit than what we're used to. At over 120 proof, the whiskey really benefits from a few drops of water that help to coax out the softer vanilla and barrel oak flavors lying underneath all that heat. Drink with care!

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
