Bulleit Bourbon 10 Year Old

Delicate, Juicy, Oak, Vanilla
Under the name Bulleit Diageo distributes a bourbon brand whose exact origin was unclear for a long time. With the 10-year-old bottling they offer one of the few core range Bourbons with an age statement.
Until 2013, Bulleit was (allegedly) distilled by Four Roses for Diageo. Then in 2017, a Bulleit distillery was built in Kentucky. In between, there was also a Bulleit visitor center at the former Stitzel-Weller Distiller. What is no secret is the recipe for Bulleit: 68% corn, 28% rye and 4% malted barley.

The bourbon presents itself strongly on the nose. With vanilla and a mixture of sweet caramel and brittle chips. Behind this are intense spicy oak notes and a hint of chocolate.


The first sip is interestingly complex. Crisp sweetness, intense rye spice and pronounced dryness at the same time. In addition, there are toasty aromas - like burnt crumbs from the bottom of your toaster. Again we perceive brittle chips and chocolate. A hint of clove in the background.


Bulleit 10 lingers surprisingly long. The finish is soft and at the same time tangy and sweet.


A truly impressive bourbon. Balanced and complex, Bulleit 10 presents itself with a wonderful harmony of sweetness and strong spice. Especially at this price, it is hard to say no.

Rating: 84/100 - Excellent (Marcel: 81 | Sascha: 87)

Value for Money: 5/5 - Very Good
