. . . . . . . is that they have engaged Jim Rutledge, the celebrated former master distiller for Four Roses, to help them build their brand. Rutledge has worked in an advisory capacity with most of Blue Run’s products, but he was contracted as the master distiller overseeing production of their Kentucky Straight High Rye Bourbon offering at the up and coming Castle & Key Distillery. This bottling comes from just 100 barrels distilled from a mash bill of 65% yellow corn, 30% rye, and 5% malted barley, and aged in Bardstown and Frankfort, Kentucky.
Appearance: Light golden color with thin but durable legs
Nose: Honey toast gives way to baking spices–nutmeg, ginger–that tickle the nose a bit.
Palate: Sweet and a bit earthy, I got alternating impressions of trailside blackberries and pu-erh tea and was exceedingly happy with both. The rye spice follows in short order, accompanied by the heat from the 111 proof, and fades into a gingery-sweet finish.
