Russell’s Reserve 10 Year Old Bourbon
In 2001, Wild Turkey released Wild Turkey Russell’s Reserve, which was a 10-year old bourbon and bottled at Wild Turkey’s signature 101 proof. In 2005, Wild Turkey reintroduced Russell’s Reserve as its own sub-brand and lowered the alcohol to the same 90 proof that it is bottled at today. While the label itself has changed, it still uses the same bottle shape as the 2005 bottling.
As its name suggests, it is aged for 10 years and uses Wild Turkey’s standard bourbon recipe, which it shares with Wild Turkey 101, Wild Turkey Rare Breed, and all of the other bourbons in the Wild Turkey lineup. It is bottled at the same 90 proof as Russell’s Reserve 6 Year Old Rye, and also has a single-barrel expression in the family, which is bottled at 110 proof, but without an age statement.
