Bulleit? Bulleit. How do you say that?

So I want to try this whiskey Bulleit. I have read on these boards, many positive accounts of it.... But, I'm not sure how it is pronounced. I wouldn't want to look like a fool, going around calling it the wrong thing. So how do you say that?
Had a few of the following last night and they were dangerously good:
3 oz Bulleit
Juice from 1/4 fresh meyer lemon
3 oz lemonade (or less to taste)
Pour over ice with small lemon wedge.
This post is very funny! The bar where I've beeing getting it, I always as for "bullet". and I've always had it fro the same bartender everytime. The last time a new guy served it too me. I asked for "bullet" and he said, oh, you mean "boolay". I giggled. ;)
Michael..I'm interested in trying this bullet and lemon. Thanks for sharing!
My friend Colin Cook manages Bulleit for Southern Wine and Spirits and told me that more cases of Bulleit are sold in San Francisco than in LA and San Diego combined.
He told me about the Bulleit Revolver:
2 oz. Bulleit Bourbon
½ oz. of Tia Maria
2 dashes of orange bitters
Cocktail is stirred over ice (not shaken!) then strained and served up with a flaming orange peel.
I met Thomas Bulleit at a Marine Corps Wine shop in San Diego about 2007. The bottles were going for $15 a btw. I still have an unopened autographed one and Thomas (Great…..Grandson) said it is Boolay.
