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
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!
