      Blue Run Trifecta Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a small-batch whiskey that demonstrates the delicate balancing act required when blending a high-quality base whiskey with the vivid flavors and aromas from older “wood heat” whiskeys. Trifecta starts with a base of finely crafted six-year-old whiskey, which makes up less than half of the composition of the total liquid. To add additional depth and character, Blue Run Whiskey Director Shaylyn Gammon blends that with two whiskeys aged in the upper reaches of their respective rickhouses, giving them what she calls “wood heat.”


      The whiskey’s blend features three bourbons with almost the same percentage of corn. That likely has a lot to do with how tight the flavor profile is in this blend. Noticeably on its palate, the bourbon sticks with the apple pie flavor profile quite closely, before offering slightly more variety in its finish. Interestingly, its 9 year old component is referred to as the “Lost Whiskey,” because it somehow made its way from Kentucky to Spain and then back again, causing a lot of “head scratching” according to the company.
