Bulleit Barrel Strength is medium-amber in color, with gentle spiciness and sweet oak aromas. The mid-palate is smooth with tones of maple, oak, and nutmeg. The finish is long, dry and satiny with a light toffee flavor, but with deepened oak notes. Because Bulleit Barrel Strength is being bottled straight from the barrel, uncut and unfiltered, the ABV will vary by batch, but will generally range from 120 - 125 in proof.
Look for a warm, concentrated caramel aroma and a relatively sweet palate that suggests cookie dough, vanilla bean, espresso and almond, with a concentrated hit of booze on the finish. Dilution with water smooths out flavors to sugar cookie and dulce de leche sprinkled with ground coffee bean. Limited edition.
