Distilled by Wild Turkey, branded under the Russells Reserve banned and aged at Camp Nelson F, this single barrel selection comes to us from the folks at Liquor Barn in Kentucky.
Rich toffee, peanut brittle, cream and fun turkey funk. All cream and sweets.
Thin to medium mouth feel. The heat is just right for the proof. Rising bread, toffee, pepper. A bit of clove, bitters, orange peel. Kind of like an old fashioned in a bottle minus the sweets. Peanut brittle is back, some creme brûlée.
Long finish, growing hotter and spicier. The play is over from the nose and palate - this dries right out leaving me with a peppery tingle.
This is a fun one, displaying some of the romp and attitude the Camp Nelson warehouse can dish out. I’m a fan, and Liquor Barn still knows how to pick em.
