    Re: BOTM 6/08: Bulleit

    Bulleit was the second step in my journey in to Bourbon (after Maker's). I think I saw an ad for it in a magazine and it looked intriguing, so I bought a bottle and it had a real WOW factor. It was my standard home pour for quite a while and I only went away from it after breaking the bank at Binny's and stocking up on all the stuff that I can't get in Ohio.

    I don't have a bottle of this in the cabinet (no room for it), but I do switch between Bulleit and ER10 when I head out to my favorite local independent restaurant for a few drinks.

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that it was pronounced "Boo-lay". Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Joe

    Sorry, Joe. You're wrong on that one.....just like the ammo.

    Based on a very small sample, I would also put Bulleit above Jim Beam Black (which I like.)

    Re: BOTM 6/08: Bulleit

    I tried Bulleit for the first time a couple months ago when I discovered that I preferred rye-heavy bourbon in Manhattans. The rye "rawness" that people keep mentioning makes for a great Manhattan. At $16 for 750ml (in MD)
    you can't beat it.

    Re: BOTM 6/08: Bulleit

    I like Bulleit... a lot. It's always in my regular "rotation". As others have observed here, its the rye spiciness / cinnamon notes that are the attraction.

    Packaging and marketing? The bottle's kind of nice looking but that sort of thing doesn't influence me a whole lot.

    Re: BOTM 6/08: Bulleit

    Bulleit is one of my top 3 Bourbons. I love it with just a splash of water. My mouth seems to explode with flavor. It definitely gets your attention. the strong Rye content kicks up the pepper flavor, but the carmel - vanilla flavors are still strong. The price is right, the color is great, and the bottle isn't bad either.
