Review: Bulleit Small Batch 95 Rye Whiskey

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 30, 2016

Bulleit RyeBulleit Small Batch 95 Rye Frontier Whiskey (bottled as Bulleit Frontier Rye Whisky in Canada) is bottled at 45% alcohol by volume and (according to the Bulleit  website) the spirit is a straight whiskey produced from a heavy rye mashbill (95 % rye) which also contains a small amount of malted barley (5 %). The whiskey carries no age statement, however based upon my tastings I would estimate the age of the spirit to be in the range of 5 years old with some of the whiskey possibly older, and some of the whiskey possibly younger.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Bulleit Small Batch 95 Rye Whiskey

“… Dusty dry grain and honeycomb are evident. There is a sense of fresh tobacco with some light baking spices (vanilla, ginger and cinnamon) and maple syrup. As the glass sits, woody oak smells build, some bittersweet chocolate drifts into the air and more rye grain and rye spice well up into the breezes …”

Please enjoy the review.

    Hi there,

    the whiskey called Bulleit rye has a Canadian heritage. It is a recipe developed by Saegrams at their Lawrenceburg Indiana plant as a base for 7 Crown.
    The recipe went to LDI after Seagrams was disolved and today the distillery and recipe is with MGP Mid West Grain products.

    The whiskey it self is a huge success being sold at different ages by different distilleries and non distilling producers under several names.

    But they all are good old 95/5 rye and barley develeoped by Seagrams


    • Dickel Rye will be reviewed in the coming months, and my research does confirm that this is a MGP distilled product. On the other hand I could find no reliable information which confirmed that MGP was the source for Bulleit Rye (Diageo doesn’t share information easily). So thanks for sharing this with me. 🙂
