July 2014

It’s no secret that the fine folks at Wild Turkey make some amazing products. Wild Turkey 101 is my go to whiskey when I am out and about and one I gift to a lot of close friends. Russell’s Reserve 10 Year is another great product. Russell’s Reserve 10 Year is a bold and spicy bourbon and one that surely has become a favorite of mine. We have received numerous comments and views on this fine whiskey and it is with great pleasure I announce Russell’s Reserve 10 Year as our July 2014 Whiskey of the Month. Please see our full review below.

Russell's Reserve 10 Year Our Rating: 89%

Name: Russell’s Reserve 10 Year

Bottled By: Austin Nichols

ABV: 45%

Proof: 90

Notes: On the nose warm notes of rye, tobacco, wood, smoke, and leather. At first sip there are strong earthy tones of tobacco, rye, grains, nuts, and wood which seemed expected from the nose. The taste of cinnamon, anise, and black pepper are present and it has a fair amount of spice with a slight burn. The finish is long and smooth, no bite or burn, with some spice and wood flavors, no sweetness. Russell’s Reserve 10 year is a bold and spicy bourbon. I enjoyed this bourbon but not nearly as much as some of the other Wild Turkey offerings. I would buy it again and I’m interested to see how the bottle opens up. I am going to do a tasting with some friends and get their opinions. Wild Turkey is quickly becoming a staple on my shelf at home. Wild Turkey 101 is readily available and one I always keep on hand, the price is perfect and the taste is great. Russell’s Reserve 10 Year can be picked up for $30-$35 which seems to be priced right.
