A powerful, but tapered Bulleit Straight Bourbon with additional fruit tones.
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.
The name "Bulleit Blenders’ Select No. 001" sounds impressive. And it is.
As the name suggests, this is the first in a series of special releases assembled by notable master blenders. In this case, that master blander is Eboni Majors. Regular Bulleit is an assembly of ten high-rye distillates. And she has selected three of them for her signature release — all aged a minimum of nine years in new oak with #1 char heads and #4 char staves. This release is bottled at an impressive 50% ABV.
