Bulleit Bourbon has long been an affordable favorite for lovers of the smokey libation. Bulleit 10 Year ($45) adds some age and flavor distinctions, at a price. The fine gentlemen over at Bourbon Blog have had the first crack at the new whiskey, and from what we can tell, it’s definitely worth a try. This big brother bourbon maintains all the simple, flavor-packed greatness of original Bulleit — char, caramel, vanilla and spice — with more depth and subtle hints of extra sweetness in the finish. The 10 is 91.2 proof, with plenty of kick, and comes in special packaging with a wealth of Bulleit bourbon history. It’s $15 to $20 more expensive than its younger brother, which a solid step up; still, with extra age and a more mature character, we’re sure tempted for a try. It’ll be available soon.
