How I Drank It: Neat, in a Glencairn Whiskey Glass

My Nose Noticed:* Lots of Toasted Oak | Dried Fruit | Spice | Hint of Vanilla

First Sip: Oak | Rye/Spice | Trace of Vanilla

The Burn:** As with regular Bulleit, Bulleit 10 has very little, if any, bite on the tongue. In fact, its rather light on the tongue with a pronounced dry oak finish. The burn appeared in the back, lower part of my throat and was very pleasant albeit non-committal. It was gone way too soon and left little behind to remember it by.

Neat, Splash or Rocks: I started drinking this one neat and was nervous about adding water to it. I feared the water would amplify the oak flavor and drown out the hint of vanilla I tasted earlier. I decided to add water anyway and was rewarded with more of the subtle vanilla notes I noticed earlier backed up with some nice spicy notes from the higher than normal rye content of Bulleits mash bill.

Region Description

\"Bourbon\" Whiskey is a whiskey made predominately in Kentucky and must have more than 51% malted corn with malted barley to be distinguished as Boubon. There are two distinctive styles of Bourbon made; sweet and sour mash. Sweet mash is fermented over a couple of days while sour mash is fermented longer to eliminate sugar in the grain.
