Packaged in an old-style bottle, Bulleit whiskey has developed a loyal following in South Africa. The high rye content (around 30%) gives this bourbon a spicy kick.
Rich and spicy, with warming notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, and crème brûlée topped with Demerara sugar. Hints of dried apricot, grape and almond, too.
Good spicy kick of rye first up, then softer notes of dried fruit and sweet spice follow. Toasty and nutty, with enough fruitiness to soften out the edges.
Well-balanced mix of sweet spice and warming rye.
