Emerald Rye is Blue Run’s second Rye Whiskey release. Contract distilled at Castle & Key in Frankfort, Kentucky, this limited collection was crafted from just 189 barrels. Emerald embraces the distinct, spicy characteristics of rye, yet with the approachability and depth of an aged bourbon.
On the nose, dreamy butterscotch and creamy caramel lead to toasted oak and spicy peppers. The palate is awakened with a quick hit of buttercream and shishito peppers followed by a blast of apples and pears evolving into a woody sprinkling of cloves and rye spice. The finish will leave you with lasting memories of leather, oak and brown butter.
