Russell's Reserve, 10 yr old
The current bourbon in my home bar is Russell's Reserve, the super-fine small-batch 10-yr-old stuff. Though still not as flawless a fluid as Four Roses Single Barrel, this bourbon, which I'm just trying for the first time, is definitely top-shelf stuff. No ice needed here.
Russell's Reserve gets its name from its creators, Master Distiller Jimmy Russell and his son Eddie. Both are from the Austin Nichols Distillery in Lawrenceburg, KY.
