Tasting Notes

Of all of the distilleries re-discovering rye at the moment there are few that are going for it like the father and son team at Wild Turkey. With a relatively high-rye mashbill, over half a decade of age, a healthy 104 proof and no chill filtration this impressive whiskey is bursting at the seams with flavor. It's a race to the finish line between the sweet and spice and it ends in the world's first ever satisfying tie. Giving new meaning to bold and beautiful, notes include whole grains, chocolate milk, mulled cider, apples, candied orange, nutmeg, and a touch of smoke.

Staff Pick Notes

Wanna step up your rye whiskey game? The Russell's Reserve Single Barrel Rye is a great place to start. From Wild Turkey distillery's father and son team of Jimmy and Eddie Russell comes a striking rye whiskey. With a mash bill near 95% rye, you would think this would be so spicy and overpowering. But these guys know what they are doing. They choose the best barrels for their reserve release, and it shows! Drunk neat, the Russell's Reserve Single Barrel Rye hits you in the front with spice, but the mid-palate is dry and almost astringent, and the finish is smooth and satisfying. Come on, get your rye on!
