  • Intro:

    Russell's Reserve bourbon is a fairly well aged single barrel release from WT that is bottled at 55% ABV. This sample came in a swap well after my Gobble Til You Wobble Series which was nice. That was a lot of turkey. The break in between was refreshing.

  • Nose:

    Calssic turkey spice and cinnamon. Caramel, clove and some faint orange zest.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel, some heat. Caramel, clove and pepper and dominant notes. Lots of allspice.

  • Finish:

    Medium length, hot and oaky. Orange is here with caramel, pepper and dry tannins.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this was nice but far from remarkable. Its a standard, on-profile gobbler - which is never bad, but often not particularly exciting either. What it does, it does well.
