Tasting Notes

Finally, after almost eight years of a serious Kentucky rye shortage, Wild Turkey has given us whiskey fans something to get excited about that we can actually get! Introducing the new Russell's Reserve Single Barrel Rye Whiskey: a 104-proof blast of old-school Kentucky rye flavor, meandering from dill and freshly baked German rye bread, into a sweeter kiss of toasted oak and soft vanilla. It's never boring. The palate is rooted in spice and a never-ending tingly sensation on your tongue that completely differentiates it from the Wild Turkey bourbons. Real, compelling Kentucky rye whiskey is back on the shelf at K&L, available full time. No bottle limits, no scouring the internet to track down your allocation.

    Very smooth creamy rye from Russell. I was taken aback a little when I first tasted this, with how smooth and well balanced this whiskey is. Definitely a good sipping rye that will please the palate of those just getting into this type of whiskey expression, or already love rye whiskey and want something special for the holidays.

    My favorite Rye in the store now. There are expressive and nice aromas with subtle spice undertones. In the mouth it is rich and round with nice caraway-like spice and a long finish. Since this is a single barrel selection inventory is limited.

    I remember when I couldn't even get Wild Turkey Rye 101, but it appears the Kentucky stalwart is now rebounding from the last seven years of shortages. What a comeback! This is single barrel, high proof rye whiskey that tastes like 2008--back when I could find rich and powerful rye whiskies full of peppery notes and classic dill flavor. This is rye in the vein of of what you remember before everything started coming from LDI Distillery in Indiana. It's like getting to know an old friend again.
