A masterful creation of knowledge and tradition.

Back in the middle of the 19th Century, when the Civil War ended, the Ripy Bros returned from the battlefields to their hometown of Lawrenceburg. They picked the slopes of Wild Turkey Hill as a place for their new distillery. It was closed for a short period during the Prohibition and in 1954, it started operating under the guardianship of Jimmy Russell, the 'Buddha of Bourbon'. He knows Bourbon like he knows breathing and Russell's Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon is an amazing result of his talent.

After the distillation, they mature the Bourbon in the deepest #4 "alligator" char. Now, charring of barrels also serves as filtration and the No. 4 char is the highest level where the barrel is charred for almost a minute (which is a lot). And when your barrel is basically lined with carbon, it filters unwanted compounds found in young whiskey. Rest assured, this Bourbon is clean as heck.

All the fuss pays off, naturally: this Bourbon is subtle with notes of cinnamon and oak, balanced with undertones of vanilla and honey. The finish is deep and rich. And that's how you will feel after taking a sip of this lovely Spirit.

Michael,
Beautiful oak, cinnamon, and vanilla. The oak is really prevalent on the palate, but fantastic.

Most excellent, very smooth and a nice aftertaste. Great in a Manhattan as well.

Pretty strong stuff with nice afterburn
 
Todd
Todd,
This is my favorite whisky hands down and not too hard on the pocket book which is an awesome combination.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Without a doubt, my new go to bourbon for relaxing by the fire pit, listening to Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong sweep me away. Yes, it’s strong... 110 Proof Strong!! But not harsh, sharp, or too powerful. The smell is sweet and classy, while the flavor is prominent and burley. I take this neat. While it never burns, it definitely gets the point across.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Very good, cinnamon comes through pretty nicely and can taste vanilla pretty well. Definitely want to have with ice or a splash of water otherwise might bite a bit hard.
 
Allen
Allen,
When I want whiskey that has a sharp bite and doesn't kid around, this is what I reach for. I think of it as the Waylon Jennings of bourbon--challenging, evocative, not for everybody (certainly not beginners). Pepper mingles with toffee as I savor the lingering taste in my throat and mouth between slow sips.
