This limited edition bottling was produced to honor the iconic Mr. Jimmy Russell, Master Distiller, as he celebrates his 60 year anniversary with Wild Turkey. 13 and 16 year-old whiskeys were hand-selected by his son, Eddie with whom he has worked with for the past 33 years. Bottled at 91 proof, this was released in August 2014. Cheers to you, Jimmy!

Tasting Notes

"Strong aromatics such as peanut brittle, smoky vanilla, and both dried and fresh grass undertones strike you first. The bourbon isn't extraordinarily chewy, but there is smoke that seems to sidle next to both the fruity and spicy flavors on the palate. The whiskey continues to develop as it sits in your glass with notes such as menthol and cherry syrup. This is a whiskey that you want to spend time with which is a sentiment you have when you’re around the man this bourbon honors."
