Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whiskey

Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whiskey- My Rating is Bottom Shelf. Why this rating? Read on below for details on-
1. History behind this whiskey
2. Tasting notes
3. SJ's Pro tip

Founded- 1987 by Thomas E Bulliet Jr. He fulfilled the lifelong dream of reviving an old family recipe by starting this company.  The website states "The subtlety and complexity of Bulleit Bourbon come from its unique blend of rye, corn and barley malt along with special strains of yeast and pure Kentucky limestone-filtered water".  All the pure water and resources could not save this from being on my bottom Shelf. 

Vital Stats- Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whiskey 
Price- $21.99 for 750ml($2.99 for pictured sampler)
Age- NAS(No Age Statement)
ABV- 45%
Region- Kentucky, USA
Distillery/Company- Bulleit Distilling. Louisville,KY
Awards Won- 2019 Gold, World Whiskies Award-Design( I am highly skeptical why it would win a gold medal for anything?)

Tasting info- 
Serving glass- The Glencairn Whiskey Glass
Serving style- Neat
Appearance- Burnished copper, dark

Aroma- Typical bourbon oaky aroma. I smell vanilla, chocolate, strawberry & tangerine
Flavor- Bitter bite to it, very strong. It literally has no unique flavor that stands out, just bland alcohol!
Body- Medium
Finish-  Short, watery non-existent   
SJ's Rating- Bottom Shelf
Terrible, not recommended. If you have to get rid of a bottle use it as a mixer
Occasions- None, unless you want to ruin a party
Cocktails- Frontier Old Fashioned
SJ's Pro tip- Using it as a mixer for cocktails would be its best use. 

Not all of my tastings turn out to be the best. Today was one of the bad ones but I feel value in providing this information to fellow drinkers who can make a decision before investing in a full bottle. 
Cheers! Enjoy Responsibly!
