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.
Calssic turkey spice and cinnamon. Caramel, clove and some faint orange zest.
Medium mouthfeel, some heat. Caramel, clove and pepper and dominant notes. Lots of allspice.
Medium length, hot and oaky. Orange is here with caramel, pepper and dry tannins.
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.
