Nose: Fairly pungent and peppy with notes of marmalade and toasty oak. Here is a hint of smoke with a beautiful, creamy banana milkshake.
Palate: Quite full with notes of zesty orange, a hint of dried peel, a note of winter spice, a cigar box character and a touch of perfume.
Finish: Medium-length with plenty of spice.

Paid $25.00 for a bottle. I'm not a regular bourbon drinker... Scotch or jamesons, etc. This is a nice diversion. For whatever reason I find myself sleeping quite soundly and deeply through the morning after 3 or 4 fingers and a couple ice cubes. Enjoyable.

As someone here said, I also believe that it takes a few times to get to appreciate this one. Grand Marnier smell in the background, almost gin-like crispness of texture, but still all of the bourbon trademarks are here, just kinda different. Once in a while, between all the Scotch single malts and what have you, I think this is a very welcome change of pace.

I think that this is the most splendid Bourbon made.

Best bourbon bar none.

I was disappointed at 1st sip as I was expecting much better in the $60-$70 price range. I've had far better at cheaper prices. But in saying that, it is still quite a nice drop, & I like the old fashioned bottle. May suit some of the older drinkers that don't normally like bourbon because of the sweetness. Bulleit has managed to find a way to take some of the sweetness out, which made for a pleasant surprize. I also, enjoyed the touch of spice & smoothness. So overall a nice drink, just overpriced for what it is. Just wish I could have tasted it when it was 45% To many people are ruining there products by dropping the percentage.

Made by the Japanese in America worth British finance and marketing is the perfect mix. Unrivaled as an Old Fashioned base - mature whisky, with slight sweet tail at right temperature.

Wanted to try something new and found Bulliet at theABC store. Did a side by side with Eagle Rare and I thought the Bulliet was far better.

Was passed a bottle of bulleit from someone who hates whisky and got it as a gift. Never tried it before,never seen it before but finished the bottle in a night! Bulleit bourbon went straight to the top or my favourites list! Has a good kick but its a smooth finish. Very easy to 'get the taste' ! Use with caution!

Bulleit also has a 10 year Bourbon which is really not that expensive at $50. For those that do like this borbon they will love the 10 year for those that didn't like this bourbon will most likely love the 10yr. I would have to admit that I don't really like the normal bulleit Bourbon I like the Rye and the 10 year old bulleit Bourbon

I got a bottle of the 12 year on a whim. Loved it. Three fingers and a cube of ice and I was in heaven. It does have a bit if a bite which I enjoyed however others may not.

I hope you have some more stock soon! Excellent bourbon.

This is the most disgusting tasting bourbon I have ever been asked to try and see what I think of it. Tastes like fermented food that has been sitting on a bench for many weeks. That's the only way I can explain it. Nothing in it seems to go together. Please don't ever expose e to anything like this again. I hope this is the feedback you need so that you no longer continue to sell it to Australia. IGA gave it to my husband for me to try as a bourbon drinker. They could not seell any of it. They were going to offer me a case cheap if I liked it. NO THANKYOU!!!! Please see the room for improvement needed.

packs quite a punch

vanilla bean and an oakey smokey nose translates onto the tounge at first sip as smooth butterscotch, with some vanilla that finishes off nicely with some spice and burnt oak, a very full bodied bourbon at this price point, with a very clean finish, it has turned into one of my everyday bourbons. It does take a few encounters to fully appreciate this bourbon. I will definitely purchase again.

This isn't exactly a subtle spirit, but it's full and spicy and has more complexity than usual Bourbons in that price range. The sweetness is there, but it's not overpowering. Good stuff.
11th July 2013
What are we, vikings here?!! Well if its good enough for Stallone...
20th June 2013
I agree with the guys above ;)
23rd May 2013
Took the words out of my mouth totally agree.
15th April 2013
This is terrific, drinkable bourbon. It is peppery, but with smooth, carmel finish. It's a treat and I prefer it over Makers Mark and Buffalo Trace.
20th August 2012
Under £20 for what is regarded as one the great bourbons of america? I'll be ordering this again soon, no worries.
19th July 2012
Great bourbon, not a master piece, but then what Bourbons really are compared to Scotches?Great value and a good addition to a collection.
26th May 2012
Very disappointed in this. Cloying in nature. Will avoid from now on.
16th May 2012
This is a very enjoyable bourbon. Not subtle, but far from overpowering. A hands down leader at this price point!
19th April 2012
My wife and I are in anchorage for 3 months and I bought a bottle on a whim and it was a better decision than going to anchorage for three months.One of the best whiskys I've had in this price range.
24th August 2011
There is nothing shy about this bourbon. Complex with a kick. Put down the Jim Beam and Makers, this is the one to try.
3rd August 2011
Lovely bourbon for the price. Orangey and sweet - obv with vanilla too - but not sickly.
19th April 2011
One of the finest bourbons I have tasted. A real treat.
8th April 2011
Very rich as well as beatifully rounded.
