Released in April 2016, Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength is made from the same high-rye mash bill as the original expression. The barrels selected were combined into a single batch for bottling at Stitzel-Weller in Louisville, Kentucky. As the name implies, this version is uncut and unfiltered straight from the barrel. Each batch will vary in ABV, ranging between 118 and 125 proof. Bulleit Barrel Strength is medium-amber in color, with gentle spiciness and sweet oak aromas. The mid-palate is smooth with tones of maple, oak, and nutmeg. The finish is long, dry and satiny with a light toffee flavor, but with deepened oak notes.
