Blue Run Spirits releases Single Barrel Double Oak Rye

Just in time for Father’s Day this year, Blue Run has gathered tasting notes from across the whiskey world for its first new-oak finished whiskey

Father’s Day is fast approaching this year and to mark the date Blue Run Spirits has announced the release date of its Double Oak Single Barrel Rye Whiskey. The expression is the company’s first whiskey finished in new, charred oak barrels and features tasting notes from dad’s that are whiskey fans.  

The Double Oak Single Barrel Rye will be available from 3pm Eastern time on June 1, 2023 at and can be found at retail in Kentucky, California, Illinois, Florida and Michigan from July.

The expression is Blue Run’s first whiskey aged in two separate new American white oak barrels, both with a #3 medium toast char level. The first new barrel ages the whiskey for the majority of the time, before it is placed into the second for a final finish that lends extra sweetness to the expression.

“With single barrel releases over 100 proof, this whiskey was already packed with flavor, but we wanted to add just a little more smoke depth to match the spicy rye,” said Blue Run co-founder and CEO Mike Montgomery. “Opting for a new, freshly charred oak barrel for the finishing versus a used port or other wine varietal barrel is a different tact in keeping with our quest for innovative whiskey experiences. Having whiskey dads provide the tasting notes was a great way for us to get even closer to our fans.” 

This rye whiskey is bottled from 10 single barrels at barrel strength. Each of the 10 separate releases in the collection ranges from 104.8 to 110.7 proof with no water added that might dilute the rich flavor.

Blue Run Double Oak Single Barrel Rye Whiskey features a gold-rimmed, individually laser-engraved wood finished-by-hand butterfly medallion on the bottle, making it easily identifiable to whiskey enthusiasts and collectors alike. It is available for $199.99 SRP.
