Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: Sweet and slightly spicy nose, with vanilla, caramel, undefined spices and some faint flowers. It is rather light, but it announces the taste of this bourbon well.
Taste: The bulleit has a oily mouthfeel and starts rather sweet, again with caramel. Left in the mouth, the bourbon will then attack the tongue with spices coming from the rye: they are rather hard to define, but I would say pepper and chili.
Finish: The spices are still active and prickle the throat as it goes down, while hiding the alcohol's heat.
Balance: The buelleit feels rough and unrefined. It has a good rye kick, but the spices are hard to define and numb the tongue and throat quite rapidly. I feel it's too aggressive to make a good sipping bourbon.
