Bulleit Frontier Whiskey
Peggy Noe Stevens
Notably fresh grain and light sage with apple and grass. Chopped walnuts and tea, with honey drizzle.
Soft oak with full mouthfeel of sweetness from the honey. Mild white pepper with simple syrup and nutmeg.
Easy going and delicate, pleasant sweetness again and stylized oak accents; the apple notes come at the end.
Delightfully fresh and easy, just perfect for a highball or light refreshment.
A big sweet and spicy nose with a bouquet of freshly cut flowers and some rye grass. Brown sugar and light caramel.
Goldilocks. Not too sweet. Not too spicy. Just right. But the bold nose has become greatly subdued. Pleasant warmth, without heat.
Goldilocks again. Right down the middle in length. Clean and fades quickly.
Pale color and shy flavors suggest youth. Devotees may find it a little lacking. Safe bet for a cocktail.
