“Best Straight Bourbon” & “Double Gold Medal” -San Fransisco World Spirits Competition
This is a much more rare bottling than the regular Bulleit Bourbon. The Barrel Strength edition is made from emptied used barrels and combined into a single batch without the inclusion of any additional water after the whiskey was removed from the barrels. Aged and bottled at Stitzel-Weller in Louisville, Ky., it gives folks the opportunity to taste Bulleit Bourbon straight out of the barrel, uncut and non-chill filtered.
Bulleit Barrel Strength is medium-amber in color, with gentle spiciness and sweet oak aromas. The mid-palate is smooth with tones of maple, oak, and nutmeg. The finish is long, dry and satiny with a light toffee flavor, but with deepened oak notes.
Because Bulleit Barrel Strength is being bottled straight from the barrel, uncut and unfiltered, the ABV will vary by batch, but will generally range from 120 – 125 in proof. The bottles we got our hands on come in at 120.2 Proof with a mashbill of 68% Corn, 28% Rye, 4% Malted Barley.
