American Whiskey - Bourbon
Bulleit Frontier Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
This score falls in the 96th percentile of all spirits in the Whiskey category and is an example of the very best in its class.
Bulleit Bourbon is their flagship brand and their take on the most classic of American whiskeys. The bourbon itself is a blend of 68% corn; 28% rye; and 4% malted barley. They regard this as a "high rye" bourbon recipe, which implies to us a robust and somewhat spicy kick to the otherwise mellow and sweet corn flavors.
Bulleit was featured on BlueKitchen.net as part of their "Best Bourbon" tour. They gave it a decent grade of "B" saying: "Bulleit isn't super-refined bourbon... but it's good sippin' whiskey just the same."
Bulleit Distilling Company came from the man Augustus Bulleit, who began as a tavern keeper in Louisville, Kentucky. His experiments in bourbon were lost in a trip to New Orleans not to be heard from again until 1987 when great-great grandson Tom Bulleit revived the family legacy. The brand is represented today by Hollis Bulleit, fourth in a line of four generations of management of the Bulleit bourbon brand. In 2010, the brand was acquired by Diageo but we were assured in talking with their representatives at the 2010 Celebration of American Distilling, that their company was still small and family-run (if not family-owned) and a partnership with Diageo to provide some of the marketing muscle. While the brand is managed by the Bulleit Distilling Company the whiskey itself is sourced from Lawrenceburg Distillers in Indiana, which we note here as the producer.
