American Whiskey Bourbon Lifestyle New Releases Rare Whiskey Whisky/Whiskey

Russell’s Reserve 2003 16 Year Old Bourbon

Bottled at barrel strength, 89.5 proof, Russell’s Reserve 2003 is a dark amber hue with aromas of charred and seasoned oak, the company reports, before additional flavors of bright spice with layers of confectioner’s sugar, burnt caramel, buttery vanilla and leather. On the smoky finish are oak and sweet notes of caramel and vanilla. Russel’s Reserve 2003 is aged for a minimum of 16 years inside the distillery’s Tyrone warehouses. The result is a whiskey reminiscent of Wild Turkey releases from the mid-1980s to early 1990s with sweet baking spices, stone fruits and butterscotch flavors.
