Bull Run Distilling Company has surprised us at every step of the way with their releases so far. Interestingly, their Barrel Strength is a tasty bourbon, but doesn't present any uniquely surprising traits like their other releases so successfully excel at. Barrel Strength is very much a straightforward affair, and at $60, it’s exactly what you expect it will be. Spicy notes highlight a robust sip that doesn't compromise structure at any turn. It's a barrel proof bourbon through and through, but probably won't leave the same kind of lasting impression other releases from Bull Run will.
