I took a Bulleit for you. Bulleit Rye

This pains me, because I am a fan of Bulleit Bourbon.  And this whiskey is a decent sipper.  It's spicey and hot when you drink it neat.

But I buy a $25 rye for a Manhattan.  Bulleit Rye brings out a bizarre celery flavor when mixed with vermouth.  I've tried serveral different vermouth and bitters combinations.  In the end.  It's only drinkable if I mix in Jim Beam Rye or a strong bourbon like Knob Creek.

So there you have it.  I took a Bulleit for you.  You're welcome.
