Christopher Null - Drinkhacker "It’s an honest, old-school, rough-around-the-edges bourbon with a real kick."
John Hansell - Whisky Advocate "Soft, elegant, and nicely rounded, with honeyed orchard fruit and gentle spice on a bed of vanilla and caramel. Very versatile; a pleasing, unchallenging bourbon to suit most moods and situations..."

Master of Malt "Still as brilliant as ever!"
Josh Peters - Whiskey Jug "A fine bourbon filled with great aromas and flavours."

A tavern keeper in 1830s Louisville, Kentucky, Augustus Bulleit was dedicated to a single goal: the creation of a bourbon unique in flavor. After experimenting with countless varieties, he finally came upon a bourbon with the character he had long sought after. To this day, Bulleit™ Bourbon is distilled and aged in the Bulleit family tradition. High rye content gives it a bold, spicy character with a distinctively smooth, clean finish.
