Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Big heaps of cherries and vanilla, with subtle notes of leather and tobacco.

Palate: Rather hot at first, the spices coming to the forefront. This is followed by peaches, more cherries and a little bit of orange zest.

Finish: A smoky finish, carried by cinnamon, allspice and a hint of sweeties.

Overall: The Bulleit distillery sure know their way around a rye whiskey.

User Reviews of the Bulleit Rye

Makes a great old fashioned

If you have the extra $$ I'd go with the Knob Creek, but this is my second choice for a Rye Old Fashioned. 2 tsp simple syrup, couple dashes of bitters, light stir, lemon zest (pinch it to release the oils), the biggest ice cubes you can find, and then 2 oz. of Rye. I'm never going back to bourbon.

interesting nose, somewhat disappointing finish

I'd seen rye described as the American Islay -style whisk[e]y. Islay single-malts are among my favourites (esp. that Caol Ila aged in moscatel barrels) so when I finally came across a bar where they serve this particular variant I grabbed my chance and ordered a neat dram with a small bottle of mineral water. Good bar: they serve in Glencairn glasses.
The nose was nice and interesting, about what I expected from reading the comments here. Reminiscent of good bourbon but not as corn-syrup overwhelming as they sometimes are. Though with more and a bit agressive alcohol deeper in the glass.
In the mouth, I was indeed reminded of a Scotch single malt, minus the peat of course. It's a good whiskey, but I found it a bit flat, lacking in complexity and evolution in the finish.

Great

I am a scotch drinker and love the peaty stuff. I generally prefer my whisky to be peaty and if not have a spicy note to it. I dislike bourbon and Jack Daniels and don't understand the love affair with them. I have however always thought that Wild Turkey was not a bad whiskey and now I know why. They have always had some eye in thier distilling process. I had read about the American Ryes of old and when this came out a few years back I bought a bottle and fell in love with it. There are two bottles with certainty that are always in my home. Laphroig and Bulliet Rye. You can drink it neat or on the rocks but it makes a mean old fashioned. Muddled orange or lemon zest, sugar with angostura bitters in the bottom of the glass with a few cubes topped with a shot or two of this, stir and you are set.

Very nice :)

Im typically a highland single malt scotch drinker but had read a few great reviews of Bulleit Rye and picked up a bottle.
Im very glad I did
My tastebuds picked up a hint of peach and cherry in a vanilla base that was perfectly oaked with just the right amount of burn to it. Traces of spices linger in the mouth afterwards from this slightly sweet smooth whiskey

Hands down top shelf Rye Whiskey.

All Nighter

To save me from having to try and do a better review, read the one titled "Great fun, strong & sweet rye flavour with 'frontier' harsh edge, tho not elegant". I'll only add that I can drink this all night and never tire of it. I don't care who makes it or how, but they did a damn fine job.

23rd May 2016

ChahBrah

The smoothest rye I've seen thus far. Makes for a mean Old Fashioned.

15th May 2016

a guy breathing air

The bottle that I am finishing now is not the same GOOD quality of the last 8-10 bottles I have had before. This bottle was weak on flavor with much burn. No rating on this bottle.

If I was close to MGP in Lawenceburg, Indiana.....I would take it back to them for my money back. Damn shame to get ripped off like this!!!! BULLEIT RYE . Quallity control like this will put me back to Knobb Creek Rye.

10th May 2016

Easy drinking rye

I gave this such a good review based on affordability vs quality. When one compares the two this is a superior malt. As good as 3 tines as expensive Rye's I've had. A good everyday drinker for a Tennessee guy who has obsession with whisk(e)y

21st April 2016

Excellent

The smell is... awkward. , boiled crayfish, wet grass..weird. But don't judge this one by that (or by it's bourbon namesake), this is a smooth, warm , grassy whiskey. Brilliant!

31st January 2016

Great Whiskey! Period

For $25 in my area, this is a great whiskey. Hot an spicy. NICE.

2nd January 2016

Bargain

In a world of over-priced whisk(e)y, Bulleit Rye, given its high quality, is practically a steal. But it. Buy it now.

24th December 2015

Top Notch!

Fantastic! My definite go-to, favorite rye! Mixes great, good poured over a single cube, and even better neat! Drink a double out of a Glencairn glass and take it all in - five stars all the way and then some. Remember, don't cheat yourself, treat yourself!

23rd December 2015

Not as good as ...

As is says it is a whiskey, not bad at all, but to similar taste to others ... their Bourbon is much better option to my opinion.

2nd December 2015

Great fun, strong & sweet rye flavour with 'frontier' harsh edge, tho not elegant

Bulleit 'frontier' Rye, like many other ryes, is made by the MGP (formerly Seagram's) distillery of Lawrenceburg, Indiana, which does not have its own brands, & supplies many 'craft whisky' marques. Uncorking Bulleit, Canadian whisky fans will immediately recognise the strong rye nose in this 90-proof (45% abv) whisky in the antique-style bottle. The dominant sweet flavourful rye taste is paired with a slightly harsh bitter under-taste, & a bourbon-style 'burn', making for an overall pleasantly rough-edged 'frontier' whisky, as the label & bottle name it. Good fun to sip straight, tho without the elegance & balance of Canadian whiskies with their pre-dominance of rye flavouring.

I'm new to rye. smother than scotch or irsh whiskey, not as sweet as corn burbon.
I like it a lot

27th October 2015

Makes a great Sazerac.

My new go-to rye.

I will be ordering this again

Very enjoyable, easy sipping whisky

30th July 2015

Best of the Best

this is probably the best rye there ever was.

25th July 2015

Great

Very nice, really easy sipping whisky. Doesn't quite reach the same level as it's Bourbon cousin, but is still very very good. Sweet and mellow, with strong undertones of spice.

8th July 2015

Awesome, Baby!

Always been a rye fan and this is my fave. A steal for under $30. Makes a great Manhattan.

30th June 2015

meh

I bought a bottle to make some affordable Manhattan's. Pretty dissapointing, should have gone with my usual mixer rye, dickle.

19th April 2015

Amazing

It's very like an Irish Pot Still spicy and buttery with loads of vanilla, needs some water or three cubes of ice to melt and is too drinkable!

21st March 2015

Not distilled by Bulleit, Bulleit is an NDP

Bulleit, despite their heartwarming backstory, is not a distiller. They purchase their whiskey wholesale from a massive industrial scale Lawrenceburg, Indiana alcohol plant and bottle it under their own name. They are very shy about telling you this, but there it is. Kudos to the fine people in Lawrenceburg for a fine whisky, but to Bulleit, liar liar pants on fire.

7th January 2015

Wonderful

This is fantastic either with ice or, mixed. Makes a really good Old Fashioned (skip the fruit and soda water). Love this rye with just a pinch of cane sugar, 4/5 dashes of bitters, and a splash of ginger ale to wet the bitters. Add Ice, rye, and top with more ginger ale. Very tasty indeed! Love this. Try the Bulleit 10 year bourbon, it's amazing!

4th January 2015

first timer

I am new to the rye whiskey world. As a matter of fact, I'm quite new to whiskey in general. Good whiskey that is. I was curious about the rye style so I gave it a try. Bulleit was recommended to me by a very knowledgeable store near my home. I must say that I am thoroughly impressed! This stuff is good. Like another poster said, I found myself nosing and sipping this for about an hour and fell in love. This has moved front and center on my list of "go-to's" after a busy work week. Cheers!

13th December 2014

Aboslutely Love It

Been a Bulleit drinker for some years now and this just increase my appreciation of the distillers - Keep up the great work.

10th December 2014

Characteristic, but too blunt

I never tasted a rye before, so this was new on me. The nose and palate confused me. Fresh cherry was the focal point here. As a typical islay drinker, not exactly my cup of tea. But I appreciated what it was telling me. However, the sheer bluntness of it offences me, making it unsuitable for a first-of-the-night dram. I reccomend it as a second or third of the night, as the edges will slightly wear down. Not bad, but there are far more reffined whisky's out there. (RB)

30th August 2014

Bulleit with a cherry on top

Lighter than rye whiskeys like Rittenhouse and Sazerac, tastes like regular Bulleit but with a very nice subtle and surprising cherry finish. Worth a try if you like your ryes and want to try something different.

28th August 2014

awesome

This isn't anything like a bourbon, cos it ain't a bourbon. It's a whole different beast. Try it, you might like it. I love it. I started on scotch but this is now my drink. Thank you bulleit!!

17th August 2014

new found love

My first rye whiskey and it was even better than expected. I'm not much of a bourbon guy so I'm exploring the range of ryes out there. Not nearly enough, but so far I'm very impressed. I usually go for a lightly peated highland scotch and have found most speysides too much for the price here in the usa. Rye to the rescue! Satisfies the fruity desire but packs way more punch. I nosed and sipped my first glass for an hour and kept saying "wow!"

14th July 2014

Smooth

First bourbon I actually enjoyed. It isn't too sweet, has a smooth butter and vanilla flavour and a little cereal finish. Absolutely wonderful for a great price (only 25 euros in my town).

22nd June 2014

Gin botanicals

I cannot taste and smell nothing else whit this stuff. I tried to like it but have 3/4 of bottle on shelf for about 8 months. I keeping coming back to it from time to time but the experience is bit disappointing.

23rd April 2014

wonderful

I love this stuff. I got a whole bunch of folks turned on to it and I prefer this to scotch. 3 Fingers with a big ice cube!

18th February 2014

Fantastic

Makes a mean Manhattan

18th February 2014

Superb Stuff

The first Rye whiskey I tried after moving to the US from the UK and still one of my faves, simply delicious and well worth it.
