The inaugural Blue Run Bourbon is an instant classic. This 113-proof small-batch temptation doesn’t need gimmicks or special finishes. It’s been aged directly into its sweet spot, delivering a mature, complex whiskey that offers an endlessly layered taste.
Jim Rutledge, formerly of Four Roses, has put together as the first release a sourced 13-year-old, small batch bourbon that is said to feature all the “hallmarks of a Rutledge whiskey – exceptionally smooth and mellow, with a long, sweet and dry finish; little to no burn on the back end.”
Nose: Vanilla on a sultry summer evening with the mildest hint of tarragon
Taste: A velvety romance between brown sugar and brown butter
Finish: Long and smooth, with apricot and golden raisins
