Russell's Reserve K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #14 Kentucky Bourbon 750ml

SKU #1161976

Finally, the much-hyped barrels from last September's visit to Wild Turkey distillery have arrived. Our group of spirits buyers left the facility in Lawrenceburg, KY about as impressed as they could possibly be. There are some wonderful things happening with Jimmy and Eddy Russell's traditional American whiskey. We picked seven casks in total, but only the first three have been bottled at this point. Cask #14 shows sweet vanilla and burnt sugar on the nose with a blast of herbaceous rye and more oaky richness on the palate. The baking spices start to dance towards the finish before the 55% ABV kicks in and dials up all the peppery notes from the wood. Overall, the flavors are very traditional and straight-forward, just very well-balanced and finely-tuned. A fantastic whiskey for those looking to see what Wild Turkey does best.

I liked all of the Russell single barrel selections that the spirits staff purchased last fall. Barrel #14 has aromas of vanilla with floral and spice influences mixed in. It is very full bodied and I expected it to be sweet, but while it had a lot of richness, the #14 is on the dry side. Very good.

The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
