One of my favorite intro Bourbons for whiskey neophytes! Easy & incredibly smooth, this is how you get people loving Bourbon and wanting to explore more.
Made in the 1830's by Augustus Bulleit (who later mysteriously vanished!), Bulleit was revived in 1987, and has risen to be one of the most popular Bourbons on the market. With a high rye content (95%), Bulleit has that wonderful grainy spice, yet is ultra smooth. Look too for notes of caramel, orange peel, vanilla, and a touch of toffee. This is my favorite Bourbon for Mint Juleps. Come to think of it, it is pretty darn fine for a lot of craft cocktails out there.
