Tasting notes: Bulleit 10 Year Bourbon
Appearance: A consistent, burnished, ochre.
Nose: At first, Bulleit 10’s nose is light and inoffensive, subtle to the point of indiscernible. Even a little dull. Eventually I notice smoke—not on the palate, but on the nose — after it sits a bit. (The bourbon, not my nose.)
Palate: The extra four years does give the Bulleit 10 a slight edge, with more of that smooth vanilla and cinnamon I get with regular Bulleit. I like a high-rye bourbon, so it’s nice to have that consistency.
Finish: It hits kind of high up, almost in my sinuses. It’s strong but not too strong, with echoes of wood, more vanilla, and dried apricot.
