Bulleit Bourbon - 45%
Enjoy Bulleit Bourbon like the Americans do! Previously it has been bottled at 40% abv for the UK market, but now you can get the Frontier Whiskey at 45% abv, just like they have in Kentucky. A stunning bourbon that won a Gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2012.
Nose: Bright with orange zest, toasted oak and vanilla.
Palate: Further orange notes, followed by some warming winter spices and a hint of tobacco leaf.
Finish: Smooth and spicy.
Overall: A new style of Bulleit (at least for us), but it's still as brilliant as ever!
Smooth and easy going
Nose. Big, spicy rye, orange zest, toasted oak, wood smoke, dried banana, cream custard. candied almonds, Brazil nut, cinnamon, bubblegum.
Taste, again rye spice, bitter peel, caramel, dry oak, apples, custard, pastry, brazil nut, tastes much the same as it smells.
Finnish. earthy and nutty
Excellent price, high quality. I'd put this bourbon at 6-8 years old. The oak is there but it's not heavy tannins as some older bourbons can be.

I prefer to drink it neat, but even when mixed this is one of the best bourbon's I have ever had bar none. I detect a subtle caramel/toffee note at the finish which gives it a very unique flavor.

Best taken straight at room temperature, no ice, with a touch of water on the side.

I was first presented with Bulleit as an alternative to Jack Daniels whilst attending a music festival several years ago. At the time, it was served with ice, coke and lime - a combination I wasn't sure about at first, but having tasted it, one I was firmly converted to. This is a bourbon for easy drinking, sipping with friends and enjoying. It'll suit a cold night in as much as it'll work with a BBQ on a sunny afternoon - can't recommend it highly enough.
