From the company website:
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 Single Barrel Bourbon taste and aftertaste
I’ve unfortunately lost some Glencairn’s while in transit, and that made me very sad. So, I wised up and bought this Glencairn Travel Case that comes also comes with 2 glasses so I don’t need to worry so much about them breaking. I think it’s great, and I think you’ll love it too.Seriously, if you already have glasses, protect them.
Blue Run 8 Year Ready & Rarin' Rating
At this point, I’ve probably pissed off Blue Run and their media company. I don’t have any vendetta or bias, this is just my opinion based on this experience and my only experience drinking anything from Blue Run. If my honesty here leads to the end of my brief relationship with Blue Run, so be it.
I have far too much fun writing about whiskey and singlehandedly running The Whiskey Shelf to bring you independent, honest, and useful reviews, comparisons, and more. I’m proudly Asian American and can speak Cantonese, Mandarin, and some Japanese.There are no sponsors, no media companies, and no nonsense. Support The Whiskey Shelf by Buying Me A Shot.
Shattered glass really sucks, so if you’re on the move, this Glencairn-like stainless steel snifter glass should survive your travels. Full transparency, this is an Amazon affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.
