Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon

$69.99

Size
750ml, bottle

Hailing from Kentucky, Russell's Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon is crafted with pre-Prohibition era techniques. Each bottle is unique, aged in heavily charred barrels to deliver a bold flavor profile with notes of toffee, vanilla, spice, and oak. Bottled at 110 proof for a powerful punch, this bourbon is best enjoyed neat.

Description

Aroma

The first impression comes from the nose. Expect a warm greeting of vanilla and caramel, often accompanied by a nutty character like almond or pecan. Hints of baking spices like cinnamon and nutmeg weave in, sometimes joined by surprising notes like chocolate or licorice. The oak influence is always present, ranging from mellow vanilla bean to a more assertive toasty or even slightly dusty character depending on the specific barrel.

Taste

The initial sip can bring a burst of warmth from the 110 proof, but it should settle into a rich and flavorful experience. Creamy toffee and vanilla flavors take center stage, often joined by hints of dried fruit like apple, cherry, or apricot. The oak influence becomes more apparent here, adding notes of baking spice, peppery heat, and a pleasant dryness. Hints of licorice or mint can emerge, adding complexity.

Finish

The lingering aftertaste is where the oak character shines. Expect a long, warming finish dominated by notes of toasted oak, cinnamon, and caramel. Hints of fruit and spice may linger as well, creating a satisfying conclusion.
