A few months ago, I was told Wild Turkey would be releasing a Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon. On Thursday, Chuck Cowdery reported the bottles should hit stores soon. He’s right. I found a bottle in Louisville.
Interestingly, the bottle is labeled Small Batch Single Barrel. Well, which is it? Small batch or single barrel? Chuck made a great point that Wild Turkey’s parent company, Campari, should be cut some slack for its labeling mishap. “The folks at Campari America, which owns Wild Turkey, still know their way around vodka (Skyy) a little better than they do bourbon, so they can be forgiven for not realizing that “Small Batch Single Barrel” is redundant,” wrote Cowdery, who was featured in Fred’s Friends.
With that said, the Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel is non-chill filtered and 110 proof. What’s not to love?
