United States – Bourbon and Rye

  • Russell’s Reserve K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #2043 Kentucky Bourbon 750ml ($59.99) We’re back with more hand-picked K&L barrels, directly from Wild Turkey’s Lawrenceburg warehouse where our spirits team visited and tasted with legendary distiller Jimmy Russell. Barrel 2403 is a gentle whisper of a whiskey compared to many of the monsters we’ve secured over the years. One would never think 55% upon tasting this delicate Bourbon. The aromas are classic burnt sugar and toasted wood and those notes translate into a creamy and supple mouthfeel on the intial entry. The palate then turns into herbaceous notes of pepper and dried underbrush before finishing with leaner flavors of pencil lead and savory spices. Those who just want a bottle they can pour and enjoy without the addition of water or ice will love this whiskey. It’s lovely sipper that drinks beautifully right from the get go.
  • Russell’s Reserve K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #2087 Kentucky Bourbon 750ml ($59.99) We’re back with more hand-picked K&L barrels, directly from Wild Turkey’s Lawrenceburg warehouse where our spirits team visited and tasted with legendary distiller Jimmy Russell. Those looking for the bright spice and youthful vigor of the Russell’s Reserve will want to go with barrel #2087. A vertiable explosion of pepper, baking spices, dried herbs, and savory goodness takes off right from the first sip. While not exhibiting the power of something like Four Roses cask strength or George Stagg, the higher than normal alcohol level definitely helps bring the spices to the forefront and accent them on the palate. Bright cinnamon and clove carry through for at least five minutes on the finish. A lovely whiskey.
