Deep gold in colour. The bouquet is sweet with fairly pedestrian aromas (gobstopper, chewing gum, vanilla) alongside fresh sawn oak and flashes of rye. The faintest taste of dry oak vanishes within seconds for a rich follow-through of sweet chestnut, a bust complexity of malted barley and rye, then spice. Mildly oily, softly honeycombed and chocolatey for a chewy, bitter-sweet finale. Like all that's gone before, exceptionally well balanced and satisfying on he finish. Absolutely excellent from first to last, an essay in balance and control.

Bulleit’s great-great-grandfather Augustus emigrated from France to New Orleans around 1800, eventually following the commerce of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers to Louisville, Ky., where he became a tavern keeper. In keeping with his French heritage, he relied on his knowledge of brandy making to create small batches of Kentucky bourbon that found favor among the settlers of the region in the mid-1800s. Soon his product was traveling with the tide of pioneers headed westward. Business was good, but in 1860, Augustus disappeared while transporting barrels of whiskey to New Orleans, and with him died the making of his legendary bourbon. Until Tom Bulleit came along. Bulleit Rye is a Straight Rye Whiskey, offering a 95% Rye Mash Whiskey and 5% Malted Barley, which makes it among the highest ryes available in the market.
