Master Distiller Jimmy Russell

Introducing … Jimmy Russell – Master Distiller.

Here’s a gentleman that truly loves the craft.  Rumored and confirmed to be ‘incredibly friendly’ and thoroughly enjoys speaking about his bourbon, and conversations over the Wild Turkey product line.

Enjoy an evening you’ll be bragging about for years, and all your friends are jealous that you not only met but had meaningful conversations with Jimmy Russell.  This will be his only Connecticut stop, so clear off your calendar.

Sample and learn all about Russell’s Reserve 10 Year Old Bourbon, also mentioned as being Russell’s personal favorites for pleasurable drinking.  Originally introduced as a limited edition by Wild Turkey during the early 2000’s, and officially released under a different label in 2005.  Recently re-released under a new label.  Deep amber color, and a nose of vanilla, cinnamon toast, touch of caramel, and some oak.  The taste is a warming elixir with the balance of sweet nuttiness, sugar cane, hints of cinnamon and some oak. The finish is a luscious candy and pecans…

Maybe Russell will get into some Wild Turkey Rare Breed, a “barrel-proof bourbon” which means it is bottled directly from a variety of barrels at the proof it reaches in those barrels, with no added water to dilute the flavor.  We heard Jimmy Russell keeps his Rare Breed in the freezer so he doesn’t have to add ice, which ultimately melts and dilutes flavor.  Rare Breed has also received a Gold medal at the 2000 San Franciscio World Spirits Competition.

And we are sure Russell will have more surprises.  Bring your smiles, enthusiasm, and a $20 donation is suggested for the JCC – a local charity whom these events are held for.
