It's both #fryeday and #whiskeyadvent day 6 and those clever folks over at Drinksbythedram have coordinated my Advent Calendar to celebrate that fact with a solid little rye whiskey for our enjoyment tonight - Bulleit rye 👌🔥 As a rye sourced from MGP, Bulleit rye features the 95/5 mashbill of rye and malted barley giving drinkers an extremely high rye content. From personal experience this is a very versatile rye and one I've drank a lot of in the past💪 That being said I haven't had a bottle of this in well over a year so I'm curious to see just how deep it goes down the MGP flavour profile rabbit hole. .
Nose: the nose opens with classic MGP notes of caramel, lots of earthy dill, a hint of red fruits, and charred oak.
Palate: the palate gives sweet caramel, dill a-plenty, earthy white pepper, faint red fruit, a kick of rye spice and a touch of charred oak.
Finish: the finish opens with a kick of peppery spice as it warms the throat and leaves an aftertaste of dry oak and herbaceous dill.
Like most rye whiskies sourced from MGP this whiskey is another great example of why everyone loves their stuff. It has lots of rye-driven spice, sweet caramel, a touch of red fruit, and that classic MGP dill. As you reach your second or third sip more soft red fruit with an undercurrent of peppery rye emerges and makes for a delicious rye that tastes great both neat and in a cocktail like a Manhattan. Bulleit Rye was my first taste of rye whiskey and remains my father's favourite American whiskey (he's a big peated Scotch drinker otherwise). As such it will always hold a special place in my heart and is the rye whiskey I've killed the most bottles of in my time.
