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).
