Bulleit 95 Rye

Delicate, Juicy, Oak, Vanilla
With Bulleit, Diageo presents whiskies with the rough image of the Wild West. In addition to two bourbons, the distillery, which as far as we know now actually distils itself, also offers a rye. In this case, the 95 on the label refers to the rye content of the mash bill, which is a whopping 95%. Unusually high, as you often get the "barely legal" rye with 51% rye.

On the nose, we find a very bourbon-like profile with apricots, oranges and caramel. Behind this, the typical rye spice comes to the fore. We think of muffins with dark chocolate. All in all, very pleasant, velvety and spicy with a hint of pepper.


The taste is also a mixture of sweet and savoury. Typically American, we have pancakes with maple syrup and chocolate-covered sultanas on the tongue. Again velvety and caramel-sweet, Bulleit Rye also changes in the mouth to spicy rye notes. These are joined by a mixture of dried herbs and brown sugar. Typically BBQ, there is a hint of oak in the finish.


The medium-long finish pleasantly continues the spiciness of the rye. Further light oak tones are accompanied by herbs and cloves.


Bulleit's Rye 95 is a simple, straightforward and very enjoyable experience. Perfect for enjoying without a lot of attention. The rye whiskey may not be outstanding, but it does what it does well enough and is well worth its low price point.
