Well, if you’re a fan of their rye then you’re in luck because they’re releasing a brand new 12-year-aged rye, using the same recipe as their award-winning Bulleit Rye. Their new Bulleit Rye 12-Year-Old Straight American Whiskey uses the same mash ratio as its predecessor, 5% rye and 5% malted barley, and then is fully aged and matured to perfection in new charred oak barrels for a minimum of 12 years.
“When we introduced Bulleit Rye, it changed the game for the category, and positioned us as a brand willing to take chances and try new things. We’re constantly experimenting and striving to satisfy consumers’ growing appetite for bold, new American whiskeys,” said Ed Bello, Bulleit Frontier Whiskey US & Global Brand Director.
According to a press release, Bulleit Rye 12-Year-Old is a pleasantly dry, bold rye that possesses notes of dried orchard fruits with a hint of baking spice and oak on the nose. At 92 proof (46% ABV), this latest Bulleit release has a clean, crisp palate with flavors of dried pear, light toffee and oak with a hint of graham cracker spice. The finish is enjoyable with light wood and spice notes.
