Distilled in Kentucky from the highest quality ingredients, this new variant is a barrel strength version of Bulleit Bourbon with the same high-rye mash bill.
The barrels selected to create Bulleit Barrel Strength were emptied and combined into a single batch without the inclusion of any additional water after the whiskey was removed from the barrels. Aged and bottled at Stitzel-Weller in Louisville, Ky., this new offering allows bartenders and fans of great whiskey the opportunity to taste Bulleit Bourbon straight out of the barrel, uncut and non-chill filtered.
Bulleit Barrel Strength is medium-amber in color, with gentle spiciness and sweet oak aromas. The mid-palate is smooth with tones of maple, oak, and nutmeg. The finish is long, dry and satiny with a light toffee flavor, but with deepened oak notes.
Because Bulleit Barrel Strength is being bottled straight from the barrel, uncut and unfiltered, the ABV will vary by batch, but will generally range from 120 – 125 in proof.

“Best. Nose. Ever. This yummy whiskey shows an incredible ability to come across as delicate despite the high ABV. Well done!”

"A full on creamy vanilla butter icing nose, with a hint of green apples. Although the alcohol is present, both the aroma and palate pull through as full bodied and fruity, with dark sugar and some liquorice spice that brings it to a long finish."
94 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Look for a warm, concentrated caramel aroma and a relatively sweet palate that suggests cookie dough, vanilla bean, espresso and almond, with a concentrated hit of booze on the finish. Dilution with water smooths out flavors to sugar cookie and dulce de leche sprinkled with ground coffee bean. Limited edition." - Kara Newman (9/1/2016)

"Chocolate orange nibs with sweet fruit and salted nut undertones. Cherry oak influence with hints of vanilla oak adding spicy depth."
