The reputation of Augustus Bulleit's rye-filled bourbon bourbon is well established today. But can not stop at a single recipe, here is a special edition aged longer, the Bulleit Bourbon 10 years ...
It comes from a selection of charred American oak barrels that have been specially set aside by Tom Bulleit himself for further maturation.
As the American actor Lee Van Cleef (1925-1989) said so well:
Adolescence begins the day when, when watching a western on TV, a child prefers to see the cowboy kiss the girl rather than his horse.
A beautiful orange amber faithful to its packaging.
Very sweet with rye spice, vanilla, warm bread and pine wood. Its further aging has considerably softened it.
Always sweet and sweet. Rye and corn, spices and charred oak. Candied orange and cinnamon in power.
Sweet oranges deposit us on a path in pursuit of the spices of rye and oak, but these flavors tend to flee before we can fully enjoy them.
A bourbon more than respectable, with a balance and complexity that we must not be ashamed. Effective alcohol content, vintage packaging, proper ripening. Solid.
