Bulleit Bourbon has now introduced a Rye Whiskey in honor of a 150 year family recipe. As the Bulleit Bourbon already has one of the highest Rye contents for a Bourbon, a pure Rye Whiskey is a natural progression. Bourbons are required to be made up of a majority of corn mash but Bulleit Rye will be a 95% Rye and 5% malted barley.
Bulleit Rye Tasting Notes:
The scent is sweet with grains and corn. The Bulleit Rye is full flavored, slightly sweet and syrupy. It’s a beautiful thick mouth feel with a sweet aftertaste with good warmth and full bodied. This is a god damn good whiskey. We absolutely recommend it.
The recipe for Bulleit Rye is as follows: Similar to the craftsmanship behind the original Bulleit Bourbon recipe created by Tom’s great-great grandfather Augustus Bulleit, it was of great importance that Bulleit Rye replicates the same high quality taste of its Bulleit Bourbon counterpart. The utmost care and precision is taken to produce Bulleit Rye, from selecting the highest quality rye grains, to sourcing our water from an ancient glacier aquifer that maintains a consistent temperature of 56 degrees. The liquid is then fully aged and matured in new charred oak barrels for a minimum of 4 years.
