Bulleit Bourbon is found in a majority of bars and restaurants across the country. And rightly so. It’s an agreeable, decently priced bourbon that mixes well and stands alone on its own. Now Tom Bulleit and the good people at the Kentucky distillery are introducing a variant that’s uncut, and unfiltered, and bottled straight from the barrel for our drinking pleasure.

Dubbed Barrel Strength, the bourbon off-shoot will be first sold in its home state in both 750ml and 375ml bottles. The barrels selected for this variant were emptied and combined into a single batch without the inclusion of any additional water. The end result is a strong and classic bourbon taste and mouthfeel boasting an impressive ABV between 118-125 proof. Bulleit fans are not to worry however as Barrel Strength maintains the original rye mash bill of 2/3 corn and 1/3 rye in production. Their firewater will just be a little hotter with this offering. The projected price is expected to be around $50 per 750ml and $30 per 375ml offering. However, as of publication, it appears this off-shoot will only be available in Kentucky for the foreseeable future.
