Russel’s Reserve Single Barrel Preview

There are two larger barrel campuses that Wild Turkey utilizes in their barrel program. The first is “Tyrone,” which includes 23 warehouses perched above the Kentucky River near the distillery itself. The other, known as “Camp Nelson” contains only 6 rickhouses, and is 45 minutes down the road, but still near the Kentucky River. Camp Nelson was not built by Wild Turkey, but was originally used to age “Canada Dry Bourbon” The 2024 Russell’s Reserve single barrels from “Bourbon World” which should be ready this summer take one from each of these campuses. The Tyrone barrel is soft, fruity, and inviting with the balance of 101 but the strength of barrel proof. The Camp Nelson on the other hand is rich and spicy, sizzling with flavor throughout.
