I'm gonna be as straight forward and honest about this as I can be and maybe I shouldn't do this. This bourbon is absolutely amazing. It's better than rr13 batch 1 it's better than batch 2. It might now be as good as the 1998, 2002, and probably better than the 2003. So that said it's likely the 3rd but possibly the 2nd best Russell's product ever made. If Eddie Russell's slapped a 2004 on the label and put it in a tater box the secondary would be over 800 bucks and it would be bourbon of the year almost everywhere you looked. For those who that got a Russell's 13 batch 1 for anything other than retail and got this for under 400 that complain about this I am refraining from saying how I really feel about your juvenile judgment. If this isn't your top 3 RR product you've had you don't like Russell's or Wild Turkey. I should keep my mouth shut honestly because you're making secondary on this somewhat reasonable. Whatever Russell's 13 batch 1 goes for on secondary this should easily fetch double. Its absolutely phenomenal. So much so I'm trading my spare Old Fitz 19 to get more of the single rick because it's better. Only thing better this year is the parkers double barreled. But don't listen to me just stay away the single rick is terrible.
