  • Intro:

    Rusells Reserve bourbon is a fairly well aged single barrel release from WT that is bottled at 55% ABV. Matured in Rickhouse E on Rick 4, this release is a hair under 9 years old. (Distilled 9.9.2011, Bottled 6.1.2020)

  • Nose:

    Spicy and funky, a bit musty. Honey, orange zest, some pepper. Faintly nutty, enjoyable molasses note.

  • Taste:

    Sweet and rich on the palate. Toffee, light cocoa, some honey. Faint pepper, hint of almond. Ethanol is present and mildly distracting.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. Spicy and hot, but plenty going on. A nice graham cracker note.

  • Overall:

    Enjoyable and quintessentially Russell’s. A little hot, but still very good. A lot of people doubt Total Wine's prowess in selections, but I think they do just fine.

  • Score:

    6
