Blue Run‘s second launch of the yr is one other contract-distilled product with Jim Rutledge as “liquid advisor” on the undertaking.

Blue Run “Reflection I” Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a small-batch whiskey which Rutledge distilled at Fort & Key Distillery in 2018.  Simply 200 fastidiously chosen barrels have been chosen for this bottling, every toasted to a #3 or #4 char and aged in Frankfort and Bardstown, KY.

The whiskey hits the nostril a bit on the recent facet, a giant barrel char punch backed up with a lot of roasted peanut and a smattering of spice field. There’s youth right here, masked to some extent by the marginally uncooked alcohol character. No main modifications arrive on the palate: Peanut is much more dominant right here, although brighter notes of cherry and a pastry dough aspect give the bourbon a form of cherry pie character later within the recreation. It’s a gentle impact, nevertheless, because the youth of peanut butter and caramel corn finally steal the present, lingering for ages on the lengthy, warming end.

Fairly dear for its complexion.

95 proof.
