Review #659 | /r/Bourbon Review #381 – Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon, Jax Fine Wine and Spirits Selection

The Schtick: We make a brief return to the days of old. I have not wobbled in some time, but it sure it time to Gobble again.


Distiller: Wild Turkey

Bottler: Wild Turkey

ABV: 55% ABV

Age: NAS

Source: Sample

Additional Info: Warehouse G-4, Barrel #37


Nose: Vanilla, orange zest. Sweet cream, cocoa and pepper. Tobacco, earthy clove and a whole lot of caramel.

Taste: Medium mouth feel, no real heat here. Loaded with sweet cream, cocoa and pepper. This blends really nicely with lots of caramel and that nice, musty, Turkey tobacco note.

Finish: Long, rich finish. Heat is well respected here. Rich toffee, citrus peel and clove. Some caramel as well.

Overall: This is really a great pick and easily my favorite so far. All my favorite notes were there and the balance between sweet and spicy is very well done.

Thanks for reading!
