The Bulleit distillery was founded in 1987 by Thomas E. Bulleit Jr., a connoisseur of whiskey and in particular of rye whiskey thanks also to the experience of his father gained in this sector between 1830 and 1860. The father of Thomas, Augustus, had put his heart and soul into creating a high quality, balanced rye whisky, until he finally found the balance he wanted. Unfortunately, his work could have been lost because Augustus mysteriously disappeared one night without a trace. Today, however, Bulleit whiskeys are still produced and above all aged according to the centuries-old family tradition.
The disciplinary that regulates the production of Bourbon is, all in all, a very precise and strict disciplinary; in fact, to use the word Bourbon on a bottle of whiskey, surely one of the most important indications is that the distilled and used raw material must be at least 51% corn. It is also stipulated that the whiskey must be produced in America, aged in charred American oak barrels, and cannot be bottled at an alcohol content greater than 40°.
Amber colour. The wide range of fragrances that spread on the nose reveals a rich and spacious nature, in which woody sensations alternate with spicy and fruity nuances, from which a subtle hint of honey emerges. On the palate it has an excellent body, characterized by a dry sip which leaves a slight note of spice at the end.
Perfect at the end of a meal or as a meditation; particularly recommended for lovers of soft, vanilla whiskeys but still with a good structure.
