Age: 8-years old

Proof: 123.8 Proof

Mash Bill: 75% yellow corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley.

Notes: Cinnamon bark plus stone fruit? That may be the first time I've added a "?" to a tasting note. But, this nose and palate doesn't stop evolving. It's fruit then spice then sweet and back again. This is all with an overlay of some nice dried rosemary and other herbal notes.

About: Georgetown, Kentucky-based Blue Run Spirits today announced a special collection of 8-Year-Old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskeys. The collection hails from ten six-year-old barrels that received a final aging of two years in the “sweet spot” of a second rickhouse to create additional harmony and balance.

The bourbon found in Blue Run 8-Year-Old Single Barrel will be familiar to many, as it was one of the exceptional whiskeys featured in the recently released Blue Run Trifecta, which received a Double Gold Medal and was named a finalist for the Best Straight Bourbon in the prestigious 2023 New York Wine and Spirits Competition. The barrels standing proudly on their own in this eight-year-old expression were hand selected by Blue Run Liquid Advisor Jim Rutledge. The last two years of their aging journey were spent on Floor 3 of Warehouse G at Bardstown Bourbon Company.

Blue Run 8-Year-Old Single Barrel Bourbon features a mash bill of 75% yellow corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley. It is aged in barrels with a #3 char level and arrives at barrel strength in ten separate bottlings ranging from 116 to 124.4 proof.

For this release, Blue Run’s signature butterfly medallion is barrel oak inlayed in an elegant gold-hued placard. The bottle also stands out with its weighted gold decanter top and black and gold bottle certification strip, making this special release a prominent figure on any bar cart or back bar.
