Russell’s Reserve Releases 15-Year-Old Bourbon

Russell's Reserve 15-Year-Old bottle on barrel

Russell’s Reserve introduced its 15-Year-Old 2024 Limited Bourbon Release. This highly anticipated limited offering is a spiritual successor of Russell’s Reserve 13-Year-Old that pushes the boundaries of extended aging. 

Driven by a commitment to release only the highest quality specialty offerings rather than a set release structure, Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame Master Distiller Eddie Russell and his team identified this particular 15-year small-batch bourbon as this year’s gold standard from the historic distillery.

Crafted from barrels that had endured 15 years of Kentucky’s frigid winters and intensely hot summers, Russell’s Reserve 15 offers fans a layered and robust sipping experience, distinctly different from past releases.

“While it wasn’t an easy decision to release something other than Russell’s Reserve 13, the added complexity from extended aging was too exciting to pass up,” Russell said in a news release. “It’s been humbling to watch what started as a passion project – a place to celebrate my family’s shared love of bourbon making – turn into something that’s coveted by collectors the world over. We stay committed to bottling only the best, and only when it’s ready. This year, that’s brought to life in these bottles of Russell’s Reserve 15-Year-Old.”

Crafted under Russell’s leadership, Russell’s Reserve 15-Year-Old is a demonstration of his decades of experience and ability to develop complex and nuanced flavors through careful aging and keen barrel selection.

Laid down a decade and a half ago, and watched over with care to be enjoyed by those who know good whiskey when they taste it, this robust bourbon offers notes of intense molasses and oak, along with the distillery’s signature earthiness.

Non-chill filtered, Russell’s 15 Year is bottled at precisely 117.2 proof, the point at which Eddie felt the whiskey’s character best shone through.

Russell’s Reserve’s 15-Year-Old 2024 Limited Release is available for a limited time for $250 SRP per 750 ML bottle at select retailers throughout the US and Asia beginning July 1.
