Blue Run Golden Rye Whiskey (750 ml)
Blue Run Spirits was founded as an ideal. We wanted to create a modernized bourbon company with expressions that taste so rich and smooth that they would entice a new generation of enthusiasts, as well as satisfy the most discerning of aficionados. The banks of Kentucky’s Royal Spring — what cofounder Jesse McKnight called the “Blue Run” as a kid — with its pure, limestone-filtered water, seemed like the perfect place to start. After all, as the birthplace of bourbon in 1789, the Blue Run is steeped in more than two centuries of distilling history.
Blue Run small batch Golden Rye Whiskey Summer Batch. After an incredible launch of the inaugural Rye expression we're back with batch 02. Named for both the distinct color of the choice grains that were used in the creation process and the accolades that the whiskey has garnered. Most notably, Gold medal winner at the SF World Spirits Competition.
Tasting Notes: A light note of maple and baking spice opens up the nose. There's pear cover in a caramel sauce with a touch of black pepper. It's viscous as a balance of sweet and spicy notes leads to a long ginger snap finish.
