Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength Review


Bulleit makes a solid bourbon so I was intrigued when I ran across their new barrel strength product.  This bottle is from Batch No. 2 and is bottled at 119 proof.  It packs some hot heat with that high alcohol level and 28% Rye mash bill but rounds itself out with a smooth taste.

The nose is heavy with spice and caramel once you let it air-out a bit.  The taste is full of spice and alcohol but a surprisingly smooth finish when the spiciness dissipates.  A really nice change of pace for Bulleit, it feels like a more complex version of the Bulleit 10 Year.  I recommend grabbing a bottle of the Bulleit Barrel Strength if you come across a bottle.
