Blue Run Spirits was founded by five people with one shared passion – great whiskey. Where did the name come from? Georgetown, Kentucky’s Royal Spring — what cofounder Jesse McKnight called the “Blue Run” as a kid — home to the birthplace of bourbon back in 1789. Putting his stamp of approval on the barrels is Jim Rutledge, a Bourbon Hall of Famer with more than 50 years of experience crafting legendary whiskies. He is joined by Shaylyn Gammon, one of the youngest and most innovative leaders in whiskey today – the creator of 2021’s American Whiskey of the Year. 

Tasting Notes

From the distillery: “Nose: A bright bouquet of warm spices and rich cocoa immediately dominate the olfactory sesnes and serve as a precursor to this exhilarating experience.

Palate: The first sip reveals bountiful orange peel that harmonizes with farm fresh honey followed by fresh toasted oak and tantalizing salted caramel blondies. As the palateremains preoccupied with the mid-note flavor sensations.

Finish: A complex finish is revealed led by spicy citrus oils that evolve into barrel spice and churros sprinkled with powedered sugar and a dash of cayenne”.

 

Method

With Reflection II, Whiskey Director Shaylyn Gammon is looking to continue the tradition while emphasizing a different layer of flavor notes than its predecessor. While Reflection I focused on the darker base notes like oak and caramel, Reflection II zeroes in on the brighter middle notes, including florals and sweetness. Reflection II also features older whiskey stocks than its predecessor, with Gammon seeking out barrels that clearly exhibited elevated mid-note flavors from Blue Run’s more than 5,000-barrel inventory.
