Bulleit 12 year old Straight Rye, 46%

Price: $50 Issue: Fall 2019 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Time in the barrel is apparent here, with ample cedar, sawdust, and toasty oak sprinkled across caramel sweetness with a medley of herbal flavors, including licorice and basil. Generous on the palate, it serves up lots of clove and baking spices before the oak tannin sweeps in, leaving a very dry finish of bitter orange pith.
