    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? - Winter 2012/2013

    I was surprised, thought it might be the ten year old or something, but no, it's just the regular stuff.

    It's weird, the 750ml is around $22.99... yet the 1.75L is only $29.99. I definitely dig it for something different.

    Take advantage of it while you can.

    My thoughts exactly... seemed the perfect time to get my first bottle of it. I think I prefer BT as my favorite 90-ish proof heavier rye bourbon, but Bulleit is a fun diversion and the price was definitely right.

    If anyone cares, my impressions between the two are:

    BT: Earthy/grassy tones, leather, peppery spice, with varying degrees of vanilla sweetness depending on the bottle. The best bottles for me have had all the leathery spice type flavors up front, with a strong vanilla finish.

    Bulleit: Almost like a 50/50 split of OWA and OGD 86, if that makes any sense. Somehow I get an almost wheater-type simple sweetness mixed with heavy rye spice. No real leathery, earthy tones like the BT... nor the vanilla finish. More simple, but still pleasing.

    I like Bulleit with it's simple, straight forward, rye accented spiciness. If they knocked about $10.00 off the price I might buy it.

    Is Bulleit much different from standard 4R expressions?

    Yes it is, Bulleit is it's own thing, far less complex than Four Roses. Isn't the rye content of the mashbill something like 38%?

    I'm sure someone will chime in, but I don't know. I thought they were like KBD - didn' know they had a specific mashbill.

    Bulleit is quite specific about bottling only it's own recipe whisky.

    Which pretty much comes down to a 50/50 split of the 4R OE and OB recipes, yeah?
