Master distillers and premier whiskey makers Jimmy and Eddie Russell have brought nearly 100 years of combined experience to artfully crafting Russellís Reserve 6 Year Old Rye. Bottled at 90 proof, this uniquely smooth, hand selected small batch rye has a crisp, lively taste that they believe to be the perfect six-year-old rye.

Caramel followed by a big slap of rye accompanied by some butterscotch, red berries, vanilla and dill. Some wood comes sliding in underneath to support the whole thing.

Caramel, rye, vanilla and wood completely dominate the palate but leave little cracks for some leather, pepper and an ambiguous baking spice to slip in.

A woody biscuity character envelopes rye spice, a watery caramel and a bit of dill that mixes, mingles and slowly fades.

Good balance, medium body and a soft simple feel makes this one ridiculously easy to drink.
