Another Russells Reserve Single Barrel joins the review archive as we look at a Polaris selection.
Honey, clove, allspice. Toffee. Loads of Wild Turkey spice. Stewed fruits, musty tobacco and some brown sugar + molasses.
Medium mouth feel, some well restrained heat. Pepper, allspice and clove are realy prominent followed by earthy tobacco, faint butterscotch and some nice fruitiness.
Short, hot and peppery - really spicy.
This pick was great up until the finish where it kind of came off of the rails. A little more pepper than I'd like, but were starting off pretty well, nonetheless.
