The Russells Reserve legacy was born in 2000 to mark an indelible bond between father and son. Two decades later, Russells Reserve continues to produce some of the most distinguished and award-winning whiskeys from the Wild Turkey Distilling Co.
Russells Reserve 2003 is the third release in the highly coveted Vintage Series produced by Master Distiller Eddie Russell. These one-of-a-kind barrels are aged to Barrel Proof perfection for a minimum of 16 years in our Tyrone Rickhouses, matured in hand-selected center-cut barrels and marks the very last of our
107 barrel-entry-proof whiskey.
2003 Vintage release pays homage to Eddies father the Buddha of Bourbon, Jimmy Russell.
So sit back, sip and savor this remarkable limited 2003 vintage release.

Russell's Reserve Small Batch Straight Kentucky Bourbon and Rye Whiskey.
Master Distiller Jimmy Russell and his son, Eddie have 90 years of making bourbon the old fashioned way in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. They don't compromise and insist that good bourbon (whiskey) is only aged in the deepest, "alligator" char American White Oak barrels. After 10 years of aging in the center cut of the rick house, a committee of two, that's Jimmy and Eddie, decide which barrels will become Russell's Reserve Straight Kentucky Bourbon. It's the only bourbon (whiskey) they put their name on.
Asked why he doesn't compromise on making bourbon, Jimmy responded, "because it's the right thing to do".
