Bulleit 10 Year B&B Private Barrel Bourbon

Bulleit's brand new private barrel program, like so many things, is feeling the impact of current events (word is that everything not already in transit has been paused for the time being.) So we're very excited to have gotten in early, and received our fantastic new single barrel bottling before that went into effect. And it’s not quite a pearl clutching moment to learn that Bulleit has sourced their bourbon, primarily from a distillery known for their 2 mash bills and 5 yeast strains - one you could say we have a rosy disposition for. We can’t say more than that - but if you want to follow the clues, give 10 bourbon recipes a goog.

This 10 year single barrel bourbon is from a higher rye mash bill, bottled non-chill filtered and at a perfect 52% sipping proof. The yeast strain is described as yielding a “rich fruit basket.” And there’s a basket of flavors here that would make any Kentucky heart skip a beat: rye spice, cornbread, and cherry cola. The sipping experience is rewardingly complex - at first dominated by the drier rye spice rush, subsequent sips open the gates to a juicy waterfall of nectarine, plum, and apple. All awash with cherry cola notes that gradually turn a bit more herbal, like a country store soda pop. The herbal notes continue to sprout on the finish, sealed up with a responsible dose of drying oak woodiness. The bookending of the drier notes with the lush, sweet center is the hot-summer-lake-dip of a bourbon we can’t get enough of.

In a complicated year, when distilleries are making responsible choices to pause some of their single barrel releases, it’s good to know that we can stock up on something this uncomplicatedly good.
