Booze Nooze.

Great news on the Booze Front. Bulleit releases Bulleit Rye Whiskey.

As you know, I have been a huge fan of Bulleit Bourbon for some time now. What distinguishes Bulleit Bourbon from the rest is that it contains a more rye grain than any other bourbon. As you also may know, I recently tried some straight rye whiskey and liked it a lot.

So while walking through the aisles of the Mondo Liquor Store (during a trip “up north”), I was happy as a clam to see that Bulleit now offers Bulleit Rye Whiskey. I immediately scarfed up a bottle, anxious to give it a test run.

I am happy to say that, knowing how good Bulleit Bourbon is, the rye whiskey exceeded my high expectations. The stuff is really good. Smooth and downright delicious. I drank it neat, but, like the bourbon, it should hold up well under ice.

If you are interested in a more refined review of Bulleit Rye Whiskey, check out these two excellent reviews.

There is one more thing that makes Bulleit Bourbon and Bulleit Rye Whiskey special, and that is that Tom Bulleit, who began producing Bulleit bourbon in 1987 based upon an old family recipe, is a Vietnam Veteran and a member of the American Legion. He joined the Navy and became a corpsman serving in 1968 with the Marine Corps, First Division, in the area north of Da Nang.

Hell, if you ask me, that’s reason enough to buy his booze.

It really is great stuff. Try it: you’ll like it.


  1. I am sure it’s wonderful. Too bad I don’t drink.

  2. I am looking forward totrying it.
    For a special bourbon, try Old Forester’s Birthday Bourbon. Expensive, but it’s as good as corn gets.

  3. I’m a scotch man, myself…but I may try it! Especially, given the latest inanities surrounding the GOP field soliciting my vote. Merry Christmas, Jimbo. I hope you and your wife have a ripping Christmas celebration!

  4. There are a lot of great new American whiskeys out there. When we were in the Mistress of Sarcasm’s neighborhood, we discovered that there’s a distillery just up the road from her in Sheffield, Massachusetts… home of Berkshire Bourbon. (Yes, you can make bourbon anywhere in the United States, as long as it has at least 51% and no more than 79% corn, aged in new, charred oak barrels, distilled to no higher than 160 proof, and aged at no higher than 125 proof.) High West, in Park City, Utah, also makes some fine brown goods, including an excellent rye.

    Rye is an essential ingredient of the Sazerac; as such, I always keep a bottle or two around.

    Jimbo, I’d take a Bulleit for you… and I know you’d do the same for me. Merry Christmas!

  5. I’ll have to try a bottle!

    I’m sipping on some of that American Honey you brought last year.

    Well, actually, I’m sipping on a different bottle, as the bottle you brought disappeared long ago…

  6. Since you turned me on to Firefly Sweet Tea Bourbon a few years ago, I’ll be sure to try the Bulleit Rye as well. Besides, they’re just about a hundred miles away. Kind of like supporting a local business.

  7. My husband tried the Bourbon some time ago and liked it…so for his birthday earlier this month, I bought the Rye Whiskey. He loved it straight up, on the rocks, and especially in his Sazerac!
