    Re: Bulleit Frontier bourbon

    just bought a bottle tonight...and tried it neat and with a micro splash (i.e., mega drop) of water.

    not catching the sweetness.
    the spiciness...and yes, that "cinnamon/red hots" sense is there...nice for being a bantam weight 90 proof!

    ratcheer, you may have really gotten a bad bottle!

    this isn't overly complex, but it's a "frontier" whiskey...i would say, for the 1800s, it would be high end!

    the water did open it up, slightly sweeten it...but nothing like Ridgemont Reserve with water...THAT's sweet. nearly the same proof, i believe.
    HUP!

    Re: Bulleit Frontier bourbon

    As someone else already stated, my personal experience has found Bulleit to vary, although I've yet to taste any that I'd call "too sweet".

    One bottle I didn't care for displayed quite a lot of youth, but my taste seems to gravitate more towards mid to well matured American whiskey (generalization for sure).

    But after the disappointing bottle, I've had samples from a couple of other bottles that have been quite different with a bit more refinement and a lot of the sharpness filed down.

    I like Bulleit. Sweet and mellow, IMO. I agree that it shoud be supported by making purchases. Maybe not many people are aware of it, yet. It's unique bottle design is also a plus.

    Okay, Chuck, you've sold me. I've had a few minis here and there of this, and I liked them, but my $20 always seems to go for something else. Tomorrow, Bulleit it is. I love high-rye bourbons, and I am all for keeping as much variety in the market as possible.

    Re: Bulleit Frontier bourbon

    I found Bulleit a bit on the rough side, although I do have a preference for high wheat mash bills. Dont recall too much else other than I have not goten a bottle since. It has been a few years, maybe I should give it another try ?
    Do you have a drinking problem ???....................Its not a problem

    I love the packaging, but didn't care for the whiskey. I like rye-heavy bourbons too, so that wasn't it. Great for mixing though. The bottle and label are just too cool!

    Tried Bulleit again last night at the Philly Whiskeyfest. It's the same perception as last time. I'm not crazy about this whiskey.

    Re: Bulleit Frontier bourbon

    My favorite Bulleit cocktail:

    1 DVD boxed-set of HBO's Deadwood.
    1 pair old denim jeans, worn near campfire.
    1 glass
    1 bottle Bulleit bourbon

    Put on jeans. Play DVD. Drink whiskey. Repeat.

    Re: Bulleit Frontier bourbon

    I had read a lot of tasting notes on the web commenting that this boubon was somewhat harsh but that its high rye content made it well suited for Manhattans. Therefore, I bought it and used it as such a few times. After trying it neat twice I have to say I sort of regret "wasting" on mixed drinks given that I have some other low cost bourbons and ryes that fit that bill. I've rather enjoyed it neat and find it far from harsh. Not tremendously complex by any means but solid IMHO.
