Bottler: Blue Run Spirits

ABV: 47.5%

This Bourbon was distilled by Blue Run consultant and Bourbon Hall of Famer Jim Rutledge at Castle & Key Distillery in 2018. The nose has notes of cherries, butterscotch, a hint of peach pie, and subtle traces of leather and tobacco in the background. The taste has a nice balance of subtle spices, maple sweetness, garden herbs, butterscotch, honey, and dried fruits. The finish is long with gentle spices. Excellent! (May, 2022)
