A new premium Bourbon that deserves a place on the top shelf.

In 1869, the Ripy Brothers started distilling on Wild Turkey Hill near Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. The namesake product became their number one seller and the name of the distillery was changed to reflect that success. The Ripy Family sold the distillery in 1952, and then the normal rounds of mergers and acquisition occurred. Campari Group out of Italy owns them now and they produce a wide range of Bourbons under the very popular Wild Turkey name along with several other brands. All under the watchful eyes and experienced hands of the only father-son master distiller team in the business — Jimmy and Eddie Russell.

The W.B. Saffell line is the third brand release in Campari’s Whiskey Baron Collection — the others are Old Ripy and Bond & Lillard. Their efforts are generating a lot of buzz and some high praise and are produced at Wild Turkey. W.B. Saffell Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a blend of select barrels aged six, eight, ten and twelve years in #4 "alligator" char barrels. And as you would expect from a premium Bourbon, it is not chill-filtered and bottled at a powerful 53.5% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
W.B. Saffell was a sour-mash Bourbon pioneer. He started working in distilleries as a teenager and worked his way up — running the McBrayer Distillery for two decades. Then he opened up his own boutique distillery in 1889 near where the current Wild Turkey Distillery stands today.

Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Warm Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is rich with notes of nutty pastries — baklava and pecan pie — with flamed orange peel, melon, and dark chocolate.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Taken neat, the palate is warm and savory with plenty of spice, cherry pipe tobacco, espresso, dark chocolate truffle, and a subtle fruit note.

The finish is long and nuanced with more nuts and a deep influence of cigar humidor.
Ratings & Reviews
