Wild Turkey Russell's Reserve 6 Year Old Rye comes straight from the distillery’s master distiller. Jimmy Russell is a third generation whisky maker. He has spent over 55 years working for Wild Turkey so he knows a thing or two about the craft.

This rye bears his name. It is a 6-year-old straight rye whisky which has won awards since it was released in 2007, including being named best rye whisky in 2009.

Like most big distilleries and brands from the US, Wild Turkey is more famous for its bourbon whisky. Rye is a bit of a departure from the norm. But Wild Turkey Russell’s Reserve 6 Year Old Rye is worth a try.

It is a very smooth rye whisky. At 90 proof (ABV 45%) it is less strong than Wild Turkey Straight Rye which comes in at 101 proof. This combined with the 6 years it spends in the barrel (it is about four years in the 101 proof version) makes Wild Turkey Russell’s Reserve 6 Year Old Rye very drinkable.
