The amber elixir of the Frontier.

It's the 1830s, Louisville, Kentucky. America only has 26 states, Chicago is just a small town, and Louisville was a growing city and a major port. Augustus Bulleit was a tavern keeper and a dreamer. He wanted to create a bourbon unique in flavor. Through trial and error, and hazy afternoons, behold: he came upon a Bourbon he'd 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's Bourbon is a subtle and complex blend of rye, corn, and barley malt. They are washed in pure limestone filtered water and enriched with special strains of yeast. This Bourbon is bold and spicy with a clean and smooth finish. Expect sweet oak aromas with tones of maple. Feel like a frontier explorer with this amber elixir.

Ratings & Reviews
Tom
Tom,
This is a solid bourbon and one my wife will actual order by name. Makes a quality mixer but is not my go to straight up or on the rocks. Worthy to keep on the shelf though.

Colton,
Good for cocktails
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Bulleit Bourbon (and the Rye) is my go-to for pretty much anything, It's a great whiskey at a great price and won't let you down.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Bulleit is a solid choice, I do however prefer the rye version slightly more.
 
Steve
Steve,
A decent bourbon, though there are better ones for the price.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
This is the bottle that comes out when I can't figure out exactly what I want. The old "Go Too" bottle...
 
Nick
Nick,
For the price point this is a solid bourbon, nothing to write home about but great for making mixed drinks for multiple guests.

One of my go-to bourbons for making Old Fashions & Sidecars. Smooth with a pleasant finish.
 
Arthur
Arthur,
I think this bourbon is a bit over-hyped but a great bourbon for the sunny- day cocktail or Wednesday nightcap. Very nice finish with a lil spice.. I don't find this to be the sweetest bourbon - which is something I prefer
 
Mark
Mark,
Not a big fan
 
Devin
Devin,
It didn’t meet my expectations but that was due to all the rave in my circle of influence. It was fine. Has a kickass finish however and for that I will return to the well.

Gissela
Gissela,
Not as smooth as others. Can be an every day staple drink. A hint of spice with a sweet vanilla & caramel taste that lingers. Much sweeter than I was expecting.
 
Mike
Mike,
A solid bourbon heavy on the oak. Great quality and value. I am seeking a better value since the price keeps creeping up.

A steady and easy to drink bourbon.
 
Michelle
Michelle,
If you are a Knob Creek Straight Bourbon fan, like myself, this is another you would appreciate. Easy-drinking. Full-flavored. Caramel, almost rummy flavor. Definitely like that vanilla and leather scent.
 
Justin
Justin,
So far this is my favorite bourbon. Keep in mind I haven't spent more than $40 on a bottle of bourbon . . . yet. I really like the vanilla and maple flavor, the creamy feel on the tongue and slightly spicy (but not too spicy) finish that lingers just about right. This is very smooth to me and I wouldn't bother mixing it with anything. I call it dangerously easy to drink.
 
Victor
Victor,
This is a fairly good whiskey for day to day but it doesn’t have much in the way of flavor and what it does have is very simple and not complex whatsoever. I typically prefer a more complex spirit with a better body for my regular drinking. This drink was also very harsh with nothing to smooth out the edges. If you are looking for a whiskey that makes you feel like you are on the frontier this is the perfect drink.
 
PHILIP
PHILIP,
Good for price point, smooth.
 
Cody
Cody,
Decent
 
Jamie
Jamie,
Very smooth initially but with a lingering burn that increases before dying away. Love the smell, lots of vanilla notes, but the taste has a lot of bitter orange peel for me that makes it not my favorite for sipping.
 
Shay
Shay,
A solid sip, especially at its price point, and very much my style. If you like rye, though, I'd personally recommend you give Bulleit's rye a shot over this particular bottle. Either way, go for it. Can't go wrong with drinks distilled in the Four Roses distillery.
 
Jon
Jon,
Spicy start, nice finish, very drinkable
 
Michael
Michael,
didn't care for this.
 
Ian
Ian,
For this price, and to be so widely available, this is the bourbon of choice for many people. While its methods are definitely new, it's flavor is a classic and the price puts it in good company. If your local grocery or liquor store is out of their allocation of Buffalo Trace, you won't go wrong catching a Bulliet.
 
Alexander
Alexander,
Strong, spicy taste. Better over ice. Don't mix it with soda.
 
Angel

Wendy
Wendy,
This was delicious! My first purchase based on Flaviar recommendations!
 
Nick
Nick,
I like this bourbon, however, it is not the smoothest. I enjoy the aromas and flavors, but I find it a little harsher than others when it comes to the after and lingering burn. Up front, very smooth though.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Tasty with a pronounced bite to begin that mellows to caramel and vanilla with a touch of wood.
 
Chris
Chris,
My go to!

I'm a bit of a bourbon nut, I'm not impressed. at the same price point Buffalo Trace is much more worthy a bourbon and always had a spot in my cabinet. Plus Buffalo Trace is actually distilled by Buffalo Trace ;-)
