Bulleit 95 Rye Tasting Notes

Straight 95% Rye Mash Whiskey

45% Alcohol – 90 Proof

Bulleit Rye Rocks  - photo copyright Cheri LoughlinAroma: Light aroma. Not much notice of spice. Slight medicinal quality. Tang undertone, but minimal.

Taste: Hint of orange. Butterscotch. Very little sweetness. Heat. Some spice.

On Ice: Still uncovers slight medicinal flavor. Sharpness. Spice. Ice mellows the spirit slightly.

This spirit sort of flat-lines for me. Not enough flavor to match the heated wallop. Price point is attractive, but would loved to have seen a bit more flavorful personality out of this spirit.

    I found it kind of harsh just on the rocks, but it’s great in an Old Fashioned.
