Bulleit Single Barrel Strength is a smooth 120 proof of their best.
 
Tom Bulleit comes from a family steeped in distilling fine Spirits. He set out to make his own mark in 1987 when he launched Bulleit Frontier Whiskey by reviving the old family recipe — Bulleit Bourbon — with a high-rye mash bill and a ton of attitude. Today they are a part of the Diageo portfolio producing a range of four Bourbons and one Rye Whiskey that have become the Spirits of choice for discriminating cocktail drinkers around the world.
 
Ladies and gentlemen, we are gathered here today to pay tribute to the greatest entry in the Bulleit lineup — Bulleit Barrel Strength. All of the Bourbons coming out of Bulleit Distillery are made from the same time-honored recipe: 68% corn, 28% rye, and 4% barley. There are no wheat or grain fillers, and every percentage point of that mix serves a specific purpose. The corn makes it sweet and savory, the rye adds some spice and body, and that dash of barley makes the yeast happy — goosing the fermenting process. Since this is poured right out of the barrel, the proof ranges between 120 and 125 (60% to 62.5% ABV). And this stuff is truly wonderful, winning Double Gold and "Best Straight Bourbon" in 2018.

At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
