Bulleit Barrel Strength Bourbon

Bulleit Barrel Strength Bourbon rounds out the family of Bulleit Bourbon, Bulleit 10-Year-Old Bourbon, and Bulleit Rye.

Bulleit Barrel Strength Bourbon

Bulleit Distilling Co.
119 proof

Color: Dark amber.

Nose: Let the alcohol blow off. After a few minutes, caramel and vanilla sweetness emerge, but deeper notes of barrel char, cinnamon, ethanol, and spearmint gum dance around.

Tasting Notes: Hot and spicy. Loads of black pepper, barrel char, anise, and burn. It did not develop the way I had hoped.

Overall: B-. "BBS" is good, but I prefer the 90 proof, 10-Year-Old Bulleit bourbon, which I found on sale for $10 cheaper. If you like the other Bulleit whiskeys, you will like this, but if you're looking for a flavorful barrel strength bourbon, there are better options out there.
