Diageo – Bulleit Bourbon

Bulleit BourbonA RELATIVE NEWCOMER to the scene, but one endorsed by learned hands and local aficionados alike (i.e. Kentucky Irishman ginger Josh, scion of Savannah). Quite soft in the nose—sweet, some brown sugar, corn flakes, and wheat here and there. Hot crackle in the first sip, but thereafter very smooth and with some strong but balanced floral and honey tones. Finish on the longer side of medium and generally mellow. Altogether pleasant, and commendable for not trying to overplay its hand. But this subtly (which extends to the understated bottle) would likely pale in a shootout with the state’s biggest guns. Needs neither ice nor water.
