What to know before taking another sip of Bulleit

It’s no secret that Bulleit’s specialty is rye bourbon — it’s been that way since Augustus Bulleit began operations in the 1800s (via Forbes Travel Guide). The mash bill is exactly 68% corn, 28% rye, 4% barley for their regular bourbon, leaving you with a spicier finish. Let’s just say, if you’re looking for a peppery bite, high rye bourbon is the best bet. In fact, Californian bourbon drinkers (especially in San Francisco) began to demand rye-based cocktails, which inspired Bulleit to release an award-winning pure rye whiskey in 2011 specifically for rye lovers. According to BlackTailNYC, this exceptional blend is made from 95% rye and 5% malted barley, leaving you with a crisp, lively nose that’s still subtly spicy, but sweeter than expected.

“I was blown away when I first tried this by how smooth, ultra-sweet and fruity it was while retaining quite a spicy note. The lingering fruity finish of dried apricot, peaches and even a hint of mango is truly sublime. Imagine this matured for a few more years and bottled at cask strength. I never thought a rye grain whiskey could be so good,” one reviewer said. of Master of Malt.
