One of our favorite brands is expanding their portfolio and we could not be happier. Bulleit Bourbon is set to release their Barrel Strength Whiskey which is touted as 125 proof.
Distilled in Kentucky from the highest quality ingredients, this new variant is a barrel strength version of Bulleit Bourbon with the same high-rye mash bill – roughly 2/3 corn and 1/3 rye. he barrels selected to create Bulleit Barrel Strength were emptied and combined into a single batch without the inclusion of any additional water after the whiskey was removed from the barrels.
“Meeting with and listening to our bartender friends who are truly Bulleit’s partners has been the smartest thing we’ve done and they’ve responded with incredible passion about our new Bulleit Barrel Strength Bourbon,” said Founder, Tom Bulleit. “This is a truly beautiful whiskey we’re sharing. I hope our fans really take the time to sip it slowly and responsibly because that’s how we’ve intended it to be enjoyed.”
Bulleit Barrel Strength carries a suggested retail price of $49.99 for a 750 ml bottle and $29.99 for a 375 ml bottle. We look forward to conducting a formal review in the near future. Cheers!
