Bulleit Bourbon 10 yo is nothing but tasty from the first shot.  
 
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 only three versions: Their signature Boubon, a full-on Rye, and their premium-aged 10 yo Bourbon. 
 
Which brings us to today’s lesson in tasty awesomeness, Bulleit Broubon 10 yo. Now, the first thing you got to know is the mash bill. All of the Bourbons coming out of Bulleit Distillery Company 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 gooses the fermenting process just right.
 
Nothing else is needed, so nothing else is added. 
 
Regular Bulleit Bourbon is aged at least six years, but is famously not “bottle until it’s ready.” But for their 10yo, those medium-char American white oak casks are left alone for a full decade and bottled at 45.6% ABV. Golly-Bob-Howdy Vern … them thar’s some good sipping whiskey if every there was any. Somewhere along the an ancient, hidden part of the Appalachian Trail the ghost of old Augustus is smiling wide.

Dickey
Dickey,
Almost too good.

Smooth, rye forward, sweetness, with medium to heavy viscosity and heat. Very well balanced and great for cocktails.
Enoch
Enoch,
A gentle bourbon that lacks the depth of flavor one might find in the next tier. But it is mild, smooth, and a good way to introduce oneself (or one's friends) to bourbon on a budget.
Alexander
Alexander,
Smooth finish, lovely full bourbon flavour. Can't find a better bottle at this price point.
Luke

softer than it's juvenile bulleit and perfect for sipping.

Smoooooooooooth. Delicious. Perfect on the rocks or with a tiny drop of maple syrup, two drops of bitters and garnished with orange peel.

Bullett rye whiskey
Diogenes
Diogenes,
Vanilla. Lots of it. Strong alcohol flavor, but not so much in the nose. Bulleit is my go to, but this is only ok in comparison.

Absolut nicht zu empfehlen. Schmeckt sehr unangenehm streng ohne eindeutigen Geschmack. Riecht mild nach Vanille und etwas rauchig.

Very nice, all around bourbon. It's a staple in my bar. The rye is great as well.

Pretty rough on the finish might be good for bourbon chicken but not neat.

Great oak flavor and the vanilla lingers like the Sinatra Jack Daniels. This will definitely be a re-purchase.

It might have been right place and time, but this bourbon hit every note I was hoping for. A little sweet, a little sour, plenty of character, lots of flavor, and at the right price.
