A lovely Bourbon from the father-son dream team.

Believe it or not, you wouldn't be here without your dad. And his dad. And his dad's dad. What we're trying to say is all the fathers in your bloodline are important. And to understand yourself (or anything, really) is to look at your lineage. The same goes with Kentucky racehorses or a new Bourbon.

Russell Reserve Bourbon is a small-batch release distilled at the Wild Turkey Distillery, owned by Campari Group. But it’s also the pet project of father-and-son master distillers Jimmy and Eddie Russell — and they have hung their name and reputation on it. There are three bottles in the Russell Reserve line, including an 8 YO, and 10 YO, and a single-barrel version. 

The Russell’s not only distill Bourbon for Campari, they get to taste and match casks too. They set aside — reserve — the best casks of aging Bourbon to create Russell’s Reserve 10 Year Old. The formula is simple and classic — a solid mix of corn, wheat, rye, and a dash of barley distilled and aged a full ten years in dark #4 char, white oak casks. Awards? It’s got nine of them, including a rare double-gold medal in San Francisco.

Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
During the fire of 2000, more than 900,000 gallons of Whiskey caught fire and spilled, setting a local forest on fire, poisoning a local stream, and saturating local limestone deposits with flaming alcohol, causing them to explode.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
