  • Excerpt: Towards the back, there's also a bit of sour cherry along with pepper and rye spice. A lengthy finish leaves you riding a wave of caramel and barrel char.

  • Excerpt: The flavor is complex and makes for a fantastic sipper. Probably the best Bulleit expression I have tasted. Its high rye profile is my jam, but it stands out compared to others.

  • Publication: Whiskey Consensus
  • Excerpt: This first release in the Blender’s Select series provides a major step up for the Bulleit brand, at least in my mind. The high rye mash bill provides plenty of the spice that I typically prefer in a bourbon, while also showcasing a range of dark fruit notes that tame the spice and proof to create a very smooth, drinkable bourbon.

  • Excerpt: All told, it drinks like a rather fruitier version of the iconic standby, and with depth to spare.
