Dating back to my first meeting with the hall of fame Master Distiller, Eddie Russell, I always wanted to know his process for picking out his 10-Year Single Barrels. It was one of those looks behind the curtain, if you will that always left me curious. I ended up learning so dang much from both Eddie and his father Jimmy, who were always as polite and likeable as you could ever want. They make some pretty outrageously good Bourbon too!
For my money, this has always been my favorite 10-Year Single Barrel that anybody makes. It’s why I was so keen on getting one of my own for our Bourbon Buyers Club too. Man, I still think about that bottle from time to time. That juice was game-changing.
This small batch bourbon is made from hand picked barrels courtesy of one of the best father and son duos, master distillers Jimmy and Eddie Russell. It’s as smooth as can be and jam-packed with notes of caramel, vanilla, rye spice and burnt orange peel. Bottled at 110 Proof, this one leaves a nice, warm Kentucky hug that lingers nicely on the back palate. It’s a bonafide winner.

This might be both the best Whiskey under $50 and the most criminally under-priced Whiskey (not that I’m complaining). Whiskey Advocate has named this one to their 7 best under $60/bottlings, but as you can see this checks in way below. This small batch bourbon is made from barrels picked by father and son master distillers Jimmy and Eddie Russell. It’s as smooth as can be and jampacked with notes of caramel, vanilla, rye spice and burnt orange peel. Bottled at 90 Proof, this one leaves a nice, warm Kentucky hug that lingers nicely on the back palate.
Our third single barrel of Whistle Pig and the first time we have our hands on their 6-year PiggyBack bottling. This one leads with a nose of freshly baked pumpernickel bread, butterscotch and toffee. On the palate, I get a lot of citrus & peach with a touch of lavender & black cherry. The finish here is strong & long with spicy dried fruits and caramel notes that linger. This one was distilled in house in Vermont, and as anyone can tell you with the farm releases, they always deliver the best of punches. This one comes in at 109.8 Proof.
A new High West release is always met with a ton of anticipation, but if you’re a fan of the Cabernet Cask finishes on Bourbons and Tequilas like I am, then this one is 100% right up your alley. The aromas absolutely drip out of the bottle—a mix of cherries, oranges, and chocolate dance on the tongue, followed by some nuttiness intertwined with a hint of the used Cabernet barrel. It’s got some spice to it, a little hickory smoke, and some dark cocoa notes at the end that keep you coming back over and over again.
