The Bulleit 95 Rye Whiskey has a spicy but smooth bite. It starts peppery on the tongue and slowly dissipates to a tingly flavor of honey, cloves, and cinnamon.
On the initial nose, I sensed a sweet aroma of pumpkin pie and the spices associated with that dessert – nutmeg, cinnamon, and a hint of honey.
The spicy, peppery bite is familiar with rye whiskies; the peppery bite can be overpowering to some taste buds, so I suggest you take it easy.
Bulleit 95 Rye Flavor
The Bulleit 95 Rye Whiskey savored neatly, but I suggest adding ginger ale and ice. Since the ginger ale has its bite, it is perfect to pair up with the Bulleit Rye whiskey.
Even though I prefer it with ice and ginger ale, most readers would go for Bulleit Rye straight or with some ice.
Either way, Bulleit Rye Whiskey can be easy to drink, depending on the drinker’s level. The Bite in the Rye provides excitement and jazz.
Bulleit 95 Rye Whiskey is a product of the Bulleit Distilling Company located in Lawrenceburg, IN. The distilling company created on the ideas and passion of Augustus Bulleit.
Supposedly, Augustus Bulleit vanished while transporting bourbon barrels between Kentucky and New Orleans, Louisiana. Even though I am a fan of regular bourbon whiskey, I have found that even I can learn to enjoy a different whiskey.
You must always keep your mind and taste buds open and be prepared to try something different…even if it is rye whiskey.
