Bulleit Barrel Strength is a smooth 120 proof of their best.
 
Who doesn’t love a great mystery story, right? Well, back in 1860, Tom Bulleit’s great-great-great granddad Augustus Bulleit was escorting a shipment of Bourbon from his distillery-farm in Kentucky down to New Orleans for sale when … poof! Several dozen bull barrels of his signature high-rye Bourbon just up and vanished along with the man himself. Was it angry Native Americans? Common highwaymen pent on mischief? Thirsty pirates? No one knows! 
 
Well, fast-forward to 1987 and young Tom Bulleit relaunched the family heritage—Bulleit Bourbon—with a high-rye mash bill and a ton of attitude. Today they make four offerings: Their signature Bourbon, a Rye, a premium 10 yo Bourbon, and Cask Strength Bourbon.
 
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.

Too spicy.

Nice deal for the true rye fan. Spicyness from rye with sweet notes and orange zest. Great for a casual night cap.

Either you like barrel strength or you don’t. If you do, this is a great entry at a daily sipper price point.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
This one is full of heat and lighter on spice with modest oak notes. Would make for a great cocktail upgrade and nice as a little more kick to regular Bulleit. A splash of water or a good ice globe will help it shine with flavor but the heat will get ya. I like it but it’s not as good as others at the price point.

I liked this a lot, more so than Booker's Barrel Proof. It is quite smooth for the strength. It is not an everyday thing but is a very nice if you want to kick it up a notch for the evening.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
It's a good kick-in-the-head whiskey. Not too much flavor that I recall and it had a heck of a burn afterwards.

Sean,
Very good. This is actually very well priced on Flaviar for once. Price in town is often $50-55 , but have seen as low as $40.99. Pick this one up to add to your collection.
