Bulleit Frontier Introduces New 12-Year-Aged Rye Whiskey

BIG fan of Bulleit.

Smooth, reasonably priced, what’s not to love?

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.

Getcha some.
