Bull Run Distilling has been putting out some great whiskey as of late. We found their 13 year whiskey finished in pinot noir barrels for 5 months to be fantastic, and this 11 year finished for an additional 37 months is almost as equally enjoyable. Full of lush flavors that commingle with well rounded drier notes, it’s a great example of wine barrel age finishing. The most amazing part is that this is being delivered for only $40. If you are a fan of wine barrel finishing, want to explore wine barrel finishing, or just like really good American whiskey that is very reasonably priced, I highly recommend exploring the Bull Run American Whiskey Finished in Pinot Noir line.
