    Re: Bulleit...Rye?

    One thing to ask yourself when someone claims the answer to your question is proprietary is, how could revealing the answer damage them? Does anyone think knowing Wild Turkey's mash bill is going to give their competition an advantage? If there seems to be no good reason for keeping it a secret, then you know something else is afoot.

    Was that a rhetorical question or are you on to something?

    I'm not on to anything, it's just that people will pull out 'proprietary information' as an excuse for a question they don't want to answer for some other reason or for no reason at all.

    Wild Turkey might like people to think their bourbon mash contains more rye than it actually does, for instance.

    Finally finishing the last of my 1st bottle of this. Won't be replacing it. Makes a damn good Mint Julep, which is how I'm finishing the bottle, but it's not worth buying just for that reason.

    I think it does well with ginger ale and orange bitters too. I have yet to try it in a manhattan or Sazerac, but I suspect it would do well in either application. Decent sipper, better mixer.

    What orange bitters do you use? I was using Stirrings, but either they stopped making it or Binny's stopped carrying it. And I can't find Reagan's.

    I use Fee Brothers. I can't compare it to anything else because it's the only thing I can find.

    Angostura Orange is what I have. I got the bottle a couple years ago, but I still see it around. As Sky said, Fee Bros. also makes one.

    A restaurant here in DSM uses Bulleit for a cocktail with mint syrup, mint leaves, oranges and ice. Really refreshing in this this heat.

    I should be able to find the Fee Brothers orange. I have their cherry, which I find a bit too on the nose.
