Bourbon News: Russell’s Reserve Announces Single Barrel Offering

Russell’s Reserve® Single Barrel Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey

Russell’s Reserve announced the release of Russell’s Reserve® Single Barrel Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey today. Building upon the strength of their existing Russell’s Reserve product, the Single Barrel offering is a full 110 proof and is non-chill filtered.

“What makes Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel unique is not only its high proof, but the fact that the whiskey bypasses the chill-filtration process. Chill-filtration is a common process whereby the whiskey is chilled at temperatures below freezing and is passed through an absorption filter thus removing fatty acids and other flavor contributors such as esters and proteins. By avoiding the chill-filtration process, the whiskey is bottled with more flavor compounds and a deeper color which is denoted by an impressive haze when ice or chilled water is added.”

Coming in at an MSRP of $49.99, the Russell’s Reserve® Single Barrel Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey is directly in line with a lot of other distillers’ single barrel offerings. We can’t wait to get our hands on a bottle to let you know how it is.
