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.

The sample used for this review was provided to us at no cost courtesy its respective company. We thank them for allowing us to review it with no strings attached.
