This is a whiskey that’s great with whiskey, but it’s also great with sparkling water.
The Bulleit Bourbon is a special, wild whiskey with the power to change your life. It’s a liquid experience that’s not just for sipping.
The taste of Bulleit, for me, is similar to that of rum; earthy, woody and a deep, spicy spice (perhaps cumin). It’s that good.

Bulleit has a smooth, spicy whiskey feel and mouthfeel. It’s a little rough on the tongue, too sherried for my taste, but there is a good deal of smoothness, too.
That which is good. It can be in many forms. It can be a warm day driving down the New Jersey Turnpike on a sticky night without a care in the world.
Bulleit and its brother, Four Roses , are two of the best selling bourbon whiskeys around. This is because Bulleit and Four Roses are two of the best bourbons.
The nose on Bulleit is very well behaved. No real issues so far, it’s clean and fragrant. Very Ryey and slightly woody.

Bulleit has to be heard, and seen, to be appreciated. It’s a very well-made spirit with all the excitement of Redbreast Irish Whiskey in a slightly grainier, older and spicier package. It’s not for the micro-managing whiskey drinkers, though, or those who want an exact flavor profile.
