Russell’s Reserve 10 Year is a small batch bourbon that’s comprised of hand-selected barrels that have been aged for at least 10 years, but possibly more. Like all of Wild Turkey’s bourbons, it’s made from their single bourbon mashbill. Strong aromas of vanilla and caramel come forward, with whiffs of aged oak, graham cracker, and leather following. It’s a strikingly quintessential bourbon aroma, and given its lower 90 proofpoint, surprisingly robust. The intense oak woody-ness of Russell’s Reserve allows it to stand up to the bold flavor combinations of Campari and rich sweet vermouth in the Boulevardier.
