10 years old
Taken from the center cut of Wild Turkey rickhouses
Color: Bright Amber
Nose: Not too many complex flavors, however the few that are present are rich and robust. Sweetness is the first thing you notice. Distinctive rye spice and oak round out the sweetness for a very balanced nose.
Taste: Delicate yet full flavored; initial brown sugar sweetness combines with toffee and vanilla. This transitions to a dry and peppery mid palate.
Finish: Fairly smooth and medium in length; sweet tobacco with a spicy rye kick.
Conclusion: The Russell's Reserve line is amongst the higher end Wild Turkey products available, and at $35 for a 10 year bourbon, this whiskey is a steal.
My Rating: B+ (Very Good)
