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.

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

Ratings & Reviews
Stephanie
Stephanie,
Too strong for me and my husband to drink strait ( we normally like a mixer anyway) so we used coke with it. Still a little strong for us but the taste is ok. Definitely has a bite at the end and is spicy. Not one of my favorites.
 
Nate
Nate,
A superior, easy to drink bourbon. Traditional taste, nothing fancy, just a great straight ahead bourbon...the way the originators meant bourbon to be.
 
Roland
Roland,
Hits the pallet with a bang and finishes with a smooth flavorful finish. The kind of Whiskey that puts a scowl on your face to let you know you're alive and an 'uh-huh' smile at the end.
 
Philip
Philip,
Deserves a better rating than 7.7. You get several great whiskies in one based on how you take it. Straight, you’ll get some caramel sweet notes, cherry, pepper and cinnamon. Take a straight pour and rest it on the counter for 30 minutes and it will balance out and develop over time. Add 10-15 drops of water and the caramel becomes milky and creamy, the mouthfeel becomes silky. Add an ice cube and it smooths way out. out, giving tons of vanilla and caramel and just a little spice. I imagine it would hold up well in a cocktail as well. The key to this one is to try it a few different ways, give it air, and decide how you like it. We liked it with a little water best. Great value at $50.

I bought this for my brother-in-law, a real bourbon connoisseur, about a year ago. It’s now his regular bourbon so it must be good.

Robert
Robert,
Great bottle, really great taste for the price. I have limited exposure to Cask Strength bourbon (read this was my first) and I expected a harsher hit with a 120+proof. Pleasantly surprised, well worth it

The pineapple brulee aroma is spot on. So unique and lovely. The toffee flavor is prominent for me with plenty of delicious spice. Would go great with a Heath Bar!

Smooth, easy to sip with subtle burn and smoke taste. Caramel apple with vanilla and a hint of spice.
 
Dan
Dan,
I enjoy the bourbon more than the Rye, which is how I first met Bulleit. a solid choice for a day-to-day glass of bourbon with a couple of cherries in it.

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.

Not bad but not one of my favorites. Probably won't order again.

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
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.
