Bulleit's classic Rye, aged for a dozen of years.
 
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.
 
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).

Ratings & Reviews
Eric
Eric,
Same flavor profile as the usual, but much smoother
 
Joseph
Joseph,
It’s decent over ice; the bouquet is fruity and it’s pretty smooth with an ever so slight bite. I wouldn’t say no to buying another bottle.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
I strongly disagree with the description of a clean finish- I found it to be quite harsh. Only useful for mixing.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
a good rye but 12 years of aging didn’t do much to help it stand out so i dont think it was worth the price. bullits stardard rye is about as are others for half the price
 
Barry
Barry,
Super harsh, has to be mixed to be able to enjoy. A real cowboy whiskey.

Good with coke, mixers

Rye worth trying, the right mix of taste and price.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Perfectly fine when just wanting a bourbon while multi-tasking...but nothing at all noteworthy about it.

Decent rye but not spectacular
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Not a fan of this one. I really like there bourbon as an everyday option but was dissatisfied with this rye.

Solid value
 
Brian
Brian,
It’s one of my favorite ryes. Very smooth. I like the spice from the rye but it’s balanced nicely with some sweetness.
 
Willow
Willow,
Formerly a fave to mix, I refuse to buy it now after the family disinherited their daughter because she’s a lesbian.
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Solid rye. Oak tastes fresh. I prefer to mix it rather than sip it neat. I do think there are better options out there at this price point (or lower) such as James Oliver and Whistlepig Piggyback.

Heavy flavor. Rich petty finish.
 
Marc
Marc,
Like everyone else says, this is the "go-to" rye whiskey. Oakey, sweet and smooth with a tiny bite right at the end which is good for mixing or straight.
