Russell’s Reserve is deep amber in color with a nose that is rich in vanilla, oak, toffee and a touch of old leather. The body is huge, and the palate is very spicy with notes of chili peppers, tamarind, almonds and cumin. The Whiskey was awarded a Silver Medal at the 2000 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Tasting note: Initially a robust Bourbon sniff offering spicy toffee apple, sweet cereal, vanilla, dark chocolate and dried fruits. Settles down after several minutes becoming more pancake and maple syrup like. The palate exhibits a mouthwatering sweet / dry balance with massive, crisp, crunchy grains (plenty for rye lovers here) followed by beautifully integrated spices. Finishes perfectly clean, dry with hints of cool mint freshness that goes on an on. Remains one of the Bourbon world’s top values.
