  • Intro:

    This is a Russell's Reserve single barrel selection, done by RareBird101 and the Russell's. The image is from RareBird's website. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Closed off on the nose, but pleasant. Toffee, musty pipe tobacco, caramel and pepper. Decadent and leaning heavily in the sweet and musty direction. No signature RRSiB orange marmalade note.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. Caramel, some tannic oak. Heat grows with time, perhaps a bit overbearing, but not punishing. Nutmeg, toffee, tobacco, plum.

  • Finish:

    Medium in length. Heavy on musty notes like oak, tobacco, plum. The oak structure is a hair overbearing but not too tannic. Strong toffee, caramel, cocoa backbone.

  • Overall:

    Overall, an excellent selection. CGF it is not, big then again, what RRSiB are? Through the lens of reality, this only helps exemplify and cement Russell’s Reserve reputation as being a phenomenal go to - selection or not. This bottle strays from the hotter, more fruit driven and settles into the richer, more savory sweet profile that can be found in many of these. A job well done.
