Excerpt: It most likely won’t overly impress anyone, but there’s a chance it may surprise them, especially given the amount of rye whiskey on the market (many of which comes from MGP). Bulleit 95 Rye might not excel at anything it does, but what it does, it does just good enough.

This is an NDP bottling of rye distilled at MGP in Indiana and bottled by Bulleit (Diageo). Its on the young side, and bottled at 45% ABV, but its inexpensive and universally available.
Sweet honey, brown sugar. Lightly floral, some clove and baking spice. Mild copper penny note.
Thin mouth feel. No real heat. Sweet vanilla, caramel and brown sugar. Spicy clove, light minty dill note.
Short, a bit more heat here. The spice really takes off. Mostly clove and baking spice, faint tobacco. The dill is here in force, though, and it feels a bit hotter than it should.
Overall, this is an abundant, inexpensive rye that does well enough for itself. Its not incredible, but its also not bad at all. I think this is a great bottle to pick up if you are unsure if youll like MGPs minty rye profile.
