Bulleit Bourbon Kicks Ass.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:26 pm

My daughter and my son-in-law, knowing what tickles my fancy and knowing what always fits, for Christmas bought me a variety of most-excellent bourbons. One such bourbon is Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whiskey.

Let me tell you: this is one fine drink. Like all liquor that can call itself “bourbon,” Bulleit is comprised of at least 51% corn. What makes Bulleit different from the rest of the bourbons is the heavy dose of rye grain that finds its way into the mix, which was formulated from a recipe created before the Civil War.

I will spare you the “oaky … and hint of vanilla” baloney to simply say the stuff tastes great. I have drunk it only neat, but I’m sure it would stand up very well to ice (clear cubes only, of course — assuming you wish to be civilized)..

Finally, a word about the bottle. What’s not to like? It looks like a bottle one would find in the Gem Saloon in Deadwood, complete with a cork, which in a pinch, could be removed with one’s teeth.

There aren’t many better things in life than a bottle of kickass bourbon on a Friday night, especially on a Friday night when the temperature outside is in the single digits.

Here’s to ya!


  1. I’m gonna have to try that one out. Cheers!

  8. I’ve had Woodford Reserve more than a few times, and it is one of the great ones, indeed. A few other bourbons I’ve sipped are here.
