The Russell's Reserve Small Batch 10 year old Bourbon was developed by Wild Turkey Distillery's Master Distiller Jimmy Russell and his son Eddie. Initially a limited edition release, the Russell's Reserve is now a 10-year, and the age is spot on for this particular Bourbon. The Cigar Aficionado describes it as a "heady quaff with a nose of sweet vanilla and buttery cinnamon toast. In the mouth, it shows its age--woodier than other Wild Turkey products. It is very sweet without being cloying, but also informed with the tang of orange peel and some spiciness. The finish is all maple candy. In short, it's a warming tonic for when the weather turns cold.

Russell’s Reserve is a hand-crafted and small batch bourbon and rye whiskey created by Wild Turkey’s legendary master distiller, Jimmy Russell, and his son, associate distiller Eddie Russell. It uniquely reflects the expertise that comes with their over 85 years of combined experience. Russell’s Reserve Bourbon is a beautiful deep amber color with a nose rich in vanilla, oak, and toffee. Its mellow warmth is balanced by notes of white pepper and orange peel. Russell’s Reserve Bourbon was awarded a Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Aged for a minimum of six years, this Russell's Reserve  rye earned a score of 96-100 points from Wine Enthusiast. Russell's Reserve 6 Year Old Small Batch Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey is made using a generations-old recipe. After the grains are mashed and fermented, they are distilled to a lower proof than at other distilleries in Kentucky, meaning that less water is used in diluting the whiskey before it is matured and bottled. Following distillation, the rye is aged for a minimum of six years in American oak casks that have been charred with a #4 char. Typically, the degree of charring within a cask is measured on a scale of one to four, with a #4 cask referring to casks that have been charred so heavily that the interior resembles an alligator hide #4 casks are nicknamed alligator-charred casks. The heavy char used in the maturation of Russell's Reserve Rye contributes bold notes of honey, wood tannins and cinnamon to the whiskey, and complements its spicy notes of rye.

After the rye has matured for a minimum of six years, Russell and his son, Eddie together, the pair have over 90 years of experience making whiskey, hand-select individual casks of rye whiskey to marry together. Once the casks have been hand-selected, the whiskey is brought to proof and bottled by hand.

Russell's Reserve 6 Year Old Rye has an aroma of vanilla, marzipan and spiced toffee. The aroma gives way to bold notes of rye, allspice, cinnamon and cloves on the palate, and finishes with spicy notes of toasted rye bread and roasted nuts.

Russell's Reserve Rye Whiskey earned the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, where it was named "Best Rye Whiskey," and earned a score of 96-100 points from Wine Enthusiast. In addition, it was rated one of the top six rye whiskies by Drink Spirits, which said: "If you are looking for the best expression of rye in a whiskey, Russell's Reserve 6 Year Old Rye is the rye for you."
