American Rye Whiskey Reviews:
Tobin’s Review 3 out of 5
Bulleit Rye Whiskey has a caramel hue with an ethanol aroma. I do pick up a little hint of sweetness as well. The whiskey is soft, smooth with a slight wood flavor. It’s not a ‘drink it neat’ type of whiskey, as the flavors are not that robust.
