  • Excerpt: This whiskey definitely benefits from a few drops of water, as it opens up nicely with notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, and caramel while taming the spices and stretching out the finish.

  • Excerpt: Whoever distilled this excellent high rye whiskey could have made a mint releasing this cask strength offering themselves. This is good stuff.

  • Excerpt: I was hoping for something more, but what I got was a hotter version of the standard Bulleit Bourbon - nothing more, nothing less.

  • Excerpt: Tempering with water brings more of the wood components to the forefront — which takes it closer to the classic, somewhat rustic Bulleit “frontier” character. At full strength, the whiskey is a bit sweeter and more dessert-like than the standard bottling, which is a bit of a surprise.

  • Excerpt: So many layers here, and each are satisfying. Bulleit Barrel Strength keeps the legacy of this particular product line alive, delivering plenty of flavor and proof with just the right amount of oak.

  • Intro:

    This is the sixth release from Bulleit in the Barrel Strength line of NAS, barrel proof, offerings. Each release features no age statement, though with a fairly hefty ABV. I'm looking forward to comparing this to the previous releases, so let's get to it.

  • Nose:

    Brown sugar, toffee, brown butter. Enticing dessert notes left and right. Nice caramel note before a healthy dose of pepper and clove stroll in for the balance.

  • Taste:

    Medium to thick mouth feel. Honey, toffee, some caramel here. Well proofed, rest nicely on the palate. Brown sugar and clove add some really pleasant depth.

  • Finish:

    Long finish that starts sweet and ends bold and spicy.

  • Overall:

    So many layers here, and each are satisfying. Bulleit Barrel Strength Batch 006 keeps the legacy of this particular product line alive, delivering plenty of flavor and proof with just the right amount of oak.
