Bulleit Straight Rye Whiskey Review

Today, I had the utmost pleasure of doing a tasting of this fine spirit. With whiskey, it's hard to find one that has a good balance especially for a price in the 20-25 dollar range.

Anyway, the smell is very refreshing. It reminds me of a winter day in a cabin right near the fireplace.

Taste: nice spice and mint flavor that has a warm bite that doesn't heighten, but rather settles in your mouth. At 90 proof, you'd expect it to burn a bit more -- that's not the case.

I've drank this neat and it went down smooth. I think a tonic or fresh sour mix would work well to complement the flavors. A nice splash of lime juice would be great, too.

Grade: 86/100
