Russell’s Reserve bears the name of Jimmy Russell, who has been working continuously at Wild Turkey for 57 years as of 2020. He is the longest-tenured, active master distiller in the global spirits industry. Aged 10 years and bottled at 101 proof, this Wild Turkey Russell’s Reserve made its debut in 2001. No later than 2005 it was replaced by the far less-popular 90 proof version. Can we here a ‘gobble gobble’ from all the 101-fans?! (We just know you just silently whispered ‘gobble gobble’).
