A Double-Gold winning classic American Rye Whiskey.

Back in the 1860’s, 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 full 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 Bourbon, a full-on Rye, and their premium-aged 10YO Bourbon.

To say that Bulleit Straight Rye Mash Whiskey is a “High Rye Whiskey” is to understate things considerably. It is, in fact, 95% rye and 5% malted barley grain. There are very few higher rye concentrations than that. And just like with Bulleit’s famous Bourbon, they follow the family tradition of using a special, proprietary strain of yeast to keep with the unique character of their products. It’s a blended-to-taste combination of their Rye Whiskies aged from four to seven years.

Smartass corner:
It’s very common for Whiskies to use a bit of barley in the mash bill — even in low concentrations. That’s because barley jump-starts the fermentation process and let’s the “planted” yeast strains get ahead of and wild yeasts that might be hanging around.

Jesse
Jesse,
So simple, yet so good. Strong and rich, a very popular favourite with my peers.

Very nice, especially for the price!
 
Nikki
Nikki,
1 of the better Rye Whiskeys that I’ve had. I’m more of a bourbon girl.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Love it, Smooth, Well Balanced. Go to with a cigar, Alec Bradley Tempus.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Staple for me and my bar. All around tasty and hits the marks with only the heat (subjective to like/dislike) being a discerning attribute. Have to admit, I'd probably put the taste more as a 7, but the price point lifts it to a total package 8.

Flannery,
Go to, desert-island liquor
 
Jerrod
Jerrod,
A great rye for the price. This is my go-to for whisk(e)y sours. It is also easy to enjoy neat or on the rocks.
 
Mike
Mike,
Go to rye for old fashions
 
Zane
Zane,
I love and drink a lot of ryes, but I always come back to Bulleit Rye. It is a bold, spicy rye, with all kinds of eucalyptus, pepper, and minty notes that come together beautifully in a caramel wrapper. I have tried and tried to find a better rye at a higher price point. Willet Rye is close, but no cigar. If I had to pick a rye for life, this would be the one.

Smoother rye whiskey.

My favorite bourbon in this “tier”. Great flavor and great finish. Enjoyable straight or with a cube.
 
Isak
Isak,
Tastes alright. A little too spicy for my tastes, and not the smoothest finish, but still delicious.
 
Ian
Ian,
A great intro to rye whiskey, if a bit harsh. Has a nice finish once you get over the initial punch of heat and bold flavors.

This goes well as an old fashion'd + manhatt'n. Solid and affordable. Good balance of sweet+spicy, with a hint of cherries.

Great cocktail rye. Perhaps the best cocktail rye.

Bulleit has been a staple in my home ever since i discovered it. A solid go to for both mixing and on the rocks. Don’t settle for less. You deserve it.

Shane,
Wow! I thought i loved rye whiskey but now i know, I LOVE RYE WHISKEY! The taste is smooth. Has a wheat taste to it. Add some ice and drink it straight.

As good a rye as I've ever had. Smooth, tasty, fun to drink, especially in warmer weather.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Top notch rye! Got some eucalyptus notes in it and for some reason I get Earl grey tea notes as the aftertaste. Definitely a good introductory rye whiskey!
 
Vikrant
Vikrant,
Great Rye taste that can be a bit over powering. Well suited for cocktails: highballs and/or old fashioned. I enjoy it with a spicy ginger ale withe a splash of orange liquor/bitters.

Smell of vanilla followed by cherry. Texture is smooth and middle of road...not light or thick

Spicy and sweet. My go-to rye!
 
Mike
Mike,
Smoother than the straight whiskey- I like this one a lot!
 
Edward
Edward,
Great taste, but for my tastes it required a longer time to dilute with ice than others. Definitely a sipping whiskey if you're having it neat. Would be great with a spicy sausage, German mustard, and sauerkraut. Spicy smell, that levels out for a buttery finish if diluted. Tastes like virgin white oak was used in my opinion. Hint of sour notes; maybe lemon peel like bitterness best describes it.

My favorite for what I call a "Manhattan Royale". 1 part Sweet Vermouth 1 part Chambord 2 Parts Bulleit Rye Pour the above over ice, sling in a dash of Angostura bitters. Stir and enjoy like the royalty that you are.
