I ranked this Bulleit Bourbon a 56/100, but even then, I had a suspicion it would make a good Manhattan. There is something about rye bourbons that make for a good Manhattan, and this as no different.
Shaken with some ice, and using the standard two to one mixture, this gained 13 points, and ranks at a 69/100. If you like a sweet Manhattan, this is just what the doctor ordered.
- Makes a nice Manhattan at an affordable price.
- Tastes like a dessert.
- Maybe just a little too sweet to drink more than one or two.
