Introducing The New Bulleit Rye 12 Year Old
If you’re a fan of Bulleit Rye, we have the perfect news for you – Bulleit Rye has just upped the ante with their new 12-year-old release. But what’s different with this new bottle? What makes it worth the hype? Let’s have a look.
Aged To Perfection
Unlike its younger sibling that’s aged for a minimum of four years, Bulleit Rye 12 Year Old has been aged for a full 12 years. That’s eight more years for the rye to mature and take on the flavor of the charred oak barrels it’s aged in.
Another thing that sets the Bulleit Rye 12 Year Old apart is its higher proof. It comes in at 92 proof, as opposed to the 90 proof of the original Bulleit Rye. This slight increase in alcohol content enhances the flavor profile of the rye, bringing out more of the natural spiciness.
On the nose, the Bulleit Rye 12 Year Old has a subtle but noticeable aroma of toasted oak, vanilla, and baking spices. As you take a sip, the flavors of rye spice, caramel, and oak come together with a warm finish that lingers on your tongue. It has a smoothness to it that may surprise you, given its higher proof.
Perfect For Sipping
While the Bulleit Rye 12 Year Old can be used to make a great cocktail, it’s best served straight up, on the rocks, or with a few drops of water to open up the flavors. You’ll want to savor every sip of this well-crafted rye whiskey.
In conclusion, the Bulleit Rye 12 Year Old is an excellent addition to the Bulleit family. It’s a testament to what patience, skill, and a passion for craft distilling can produce. If you’re a fan of rye whiskey and appreciate a quality pour, you won’t be disappointed with this one. It’s a perfect example of how aging a spirit can make all the difference. So go ahead, raise a glass, and enjoy a sip of the new Bulleit Rye 12 Year Old.
