Bulleit Bourbon (45% ABV)

Nose:  Light notes of caramel and white pepper. A slight undertone of celery root. Light cinnamon, a trace of brown sugar and nutmeg. Very low level vanilla; an element of the nose sits on the cusp of piney young rye and mere solvent.
Palate: 
Light, a bit of vanilla. Some astringent wood. A bit of caramel. Faint orange and cinnamon.
Finish: 
Cinnamon up front with a bit of rye. Vanilla and citrus after, with white pepper asserting itself later on. 
Comment:
It lacks cohesiveness on the palate. The nose is pleasant enough aside from the funky earthy bitter note. Beyond that it’s quite light and forgettable. Not bad, not particularly good. Very middle of the road. There’s nothing bad about this one, there’s nothing that really draws me to it. It doesn’t have much to say. 
Rating:
C+
