Food Pairings for Wild Turkey Russells' Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 10yearold
At the Wild Turkey Distillery, bourbon is a family tradition. Our Master Distiller Jimmy Russell follows his father and grandfather before him. His son, Eddie is a veritable newcomer, with just 20 years under his belt. Passing down the secrets of the distilling tradition from generation to generation is one of the things that has kept Wild Turkey true to the strictest standards in an era when so many others are willing to cut corners. Jimmy Russell has always held the line on tradition. You'll still see him, now joined by Eddie, early in the morning, inspecting shipments of grains as they come in, checking the stills, or wandering through the warehouses to make sure the barrels are getting the proper circulation. Jimmy and Eddie recently realized they had more in common than just their family connection. "Both Eddie and I believe 10 years is a wonderful stage of maturity for a bourbon," comments Jimmy. In fact, it was Eddie who suggested to Jimmy that they offer a special bottling for consumers to enjoy. Jimmy agreed and in honor of their joint effort, he put their name on it. Russell's Reserve is deep amber in color with a nose that is rich in vanilla, oak, toffee and a touch of old leather. The body is huge, and the palate is very spicy with notes of chili peppers, tamarind, almonds and cumin.
