This was my entry into the world of bourbon and it was like being thrown into the deep end of a pool after only having jameson and jack.

Nose: The nose of the bourbon is spicy, with some caramel, vanilla, and a fruitiness that could be from the rye. Palate: Without water it was very spicy, with just hints of vanilla, caramel and oak in the backround. With water it was very nice still rough on my unaccustomed palate but enjoyable, the vanilla, and caramel really came to the fore to me. Finish: Spicy,with vanilla, caramel and it was a tad fruity, might be spiced apple and thats why i love it.

I loved this one too! Oh and if u like this, you can blindly buy Elijah Craig 12, Four Roses Single Barrel(50%) or Buffalo Trace. I´m yet to dive in the world of rye as well. Enjoy your bourbon quest!

EC12, elmer t lee, old weller 107 and old grand dad 114. Sadly they didnt enjoy it which was a shame since it was what i bought on the brightside i got to take the bourbons home.

Perhaps members/fanciers would enjoy a video our Food & Spirits Editor filmed with a local bartender in which Bulleit played a primary role. DISCLOSURE: We have no relationship with Bulleit or the establishment in this video, though we have been known to patronize both: news24-680.com/lamorinda-community/events/…
