Russell's Reserve 2002 Kentucky Straight Bourbon 750ml
Eddie searched through over half a million barrels for the perfect follow up to their Russell’s Reserve 1998 release. For 15 years we waited for this small-batch bourbon to reach peak maturity. Deep golden amber in color, it’s our first non-chill filtered barrel proof bourbon. Truly a vintage worthy of the wait. Russell’s Reserve 2002 is the first non-chill filtered barrel proof bourbon released by the brand. The release is comprised of 25 barrels that had been aging in Wild Turkey’s offsite Camp Nelson rickhouses for 15 years. It’s a sequel to Russell’s Reserve 1998 with similar packaging. It’s also meant to pay homage to a milestone achieved this year: father-son master distillers Jimmy and Eddie Russell’s combined 101 years with Wild Turkey. Only 3,640 bottles were released to a total of 14 states: AZ, CA, FL, GA, IL, KY, NC, NV, NY, OH, OR, TN, TX, and WA.

About the brand
A brand born and raised in Kentucky, Wild Turkey's name is a stamp of quality the world over. Distributing their bourbon through wholesalers in the early 1900s, the brand's name was conceived when one of their wholesalers took several warehouse samples on a wild turkey hunting trip where the bourbon was hugely popular. Since then, Wild Turkey has gone on to dominate as one of Kentucky's most famous and acclaimed bourbon whiskeys, bottling countless mature aged, straight, single barrel, and cask finished varieties. Whatever your taste, Wild Turkey is sure to satisfy and is a staple of any good whiskey cabinet.

Unquestionably feel the chomp on this needs somewhat cut. Great flavor no smoke weak completion.

Extraordinary pour - marginally too oaky on the completion is the main analysis. Exemplary RR profile however raised

vanilla oak and cowhide on the button. Solid cowhide and oak prompts an overly smooth vanilla with a zesty oaky finish. Including a touch of water changes this bourbon into a flavor bomb with a rich vanilla completion

Tasting Notes
Nose
Rich with honeyed oak, caramel, and vanilla forming the foundation. Seasoned wood and a splash of rye spice add dimension. 2002’s age is evident here, as the oak notes create the backbone, though it’s not overdone. The aromas are full in intensity, stripping away any dose of ethanol you might anticipate for the proof and making for a balanced and complex array of scents.
Taste
A pop of rye spice up front is followed by sweet notes of honey, caramel, and vanilla. Wood forms the base, with varying aspects of flavor - burnt wood, seasoned oak, and cigar box. Hints of leather and tobacco are also present.
Finish
Rye spice carries through, along with bouts of cinnamon spice. The sweeter caramel, honey, and vanilla notes also push into the finish, accompanied by an underlying array of oak.
