Very smooth. Beats out many higher priced bourbons at an affordable price. I'm now a Russell's fan.

One of the better pours I’ve had! A really outstanding bourbon!
Literally $49.99 at Fresno Costco as of 2/4/21. Talk about a huge mark up.

Russell's Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon is a great tasting Bourbon. It's Spicy with a bit of Vanilla and Cinnamon. Most importantly it's strong stuff with 110 proof.

He’s a WT 101 guy, hard to come by these days, who knew?!? This is great and a nice sub
I received a bottle of this as a member of Wall Street Journal Plus. I generally sip on Knob Creek but based on the story behind this, looked forward to receiving it. It has not disappointed. A very distinct first taste, followed by all the synergistic flavors. I know it’s blasphemy but I like two cubes of ice. That, and a good cigar on the back deck, makes for a wonderful Sunday afternoon - even drinking Kentucky Bourbon while residing in Tennessee. This is one you don’t share with anyone who isn’t an experienced and appreciative whiskey drinker.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
