Thread: Bulliet Rye

  1. #1

    Bulliet Rye

    Picked up a bottle of this Saturday and I am on my third glass since last night. I must say, this is a mighty fine whiskey at a mighty fine price.

    I find the Bulliet Rye far too minty for my palate... I do like their bourbon

    It's the first rye I have tried, I am excited about trying some other brands as well. Any suggestions on what a good next bottle may be? I also like the Buillet bourbon, very nice pour.

    Any Rye you can get your hands on except JB Rye or Old Overholt. Rittenhouse BIB or WT Rye or maybe Baby Saz would be must buys.

    Bulleit is an atypical rye. Sazerac Rye (Baby Saz to distinguish it from the 18 year old. Baby Saz is NAS) and Wild Turkey Rye are pretty typical. Rittenhouse is more bourbon-like. I don't share HipFlask's aversion to Old Overholt and Jim Beam Rye (both made by Jim Beam). Jim Beam Rye is the best-selling rye by a wide margin, in part because it's just about the only one available in a lot of places. And because it's cheap. Beam Rye and Overholt are also pretty typical. The best seller in a category is typical by definition, I guess.

    I've come to appreciate the LDI house-style. Besides liking the overall flavor profile, the really nice thing about LDI Rye is the variety of bottlings. What other major lets their rye-mashbill loose on the open market to result in what's starting to become a dozen various expressions?

    Viva la LDI!

    I find the LDI rye's to have a very wide range ... some like the Bulleit which IMO tastes far to minty, almost tooth paste like. On the other hand the recent 3YO SB CS that Willett which SV did is one of the sweetest and most attractive young rye's I have tasted with the mint well under control.

    I must not be up on the abbreviation codes. What is "SB CS that Willet which SV did''.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I think that would be the single barrel cask, strength that Willett bottled for Shopper's Vineyard.

    Reid's acronyms run deep.
