Bulleit's classic Rye, aged for a dozen of years.
 
It's the 1830s, Louisville, Kentucky. America only has 26 states, Chicago is just a small city, and Louisville is a growing town and a major port. Augustus Bulleit is a tavern keeper and a dreamer. He wants to create a Bourbon unique in flavor. Through trial, error, and hazy afternoons, he creates a Bourbon he's been looking for. Then, one day, with a wagon full of his new concoction headed to New Orleans, he disappears. His precious recipe almost gone as well. Fast-forward to 1987 when Augustus's great-great-grandson Tom (also a dreamer) decided to recreate the golden Spirit. He aged a small batch of the 'white dog' for six years in heavily charred barrels. Then, he took old-school medicine bottles with raised lettering and brown tinted glass and filled them up with this reanimated Phoenix. Bulleit Whiskey is back and ready to rumble.
 
Bulleit's 12-Year-Old is a no-nonsense limited release of their classic, award-winning Bulleit Rye Whiskey, except this beauty is matured in hand-picked oak barrels for a decade and two years. The mash bill is 95% rye and 5% malted barley, a balanced harmony of smoothness and spice. This opulent and enhanced version of the original is a lovely addition for Rye enthusiasts and is best served neat or on the rocks. If you love a fine cocktail, this Spirit makes a fantastic Ryes Up (a spicy relative of the Manhattan cocktail).
