    Russell's Reserve Returns In Alabama

    My fellow Alabama residents may be interested to know that Russell's Reserve (bourbon only; no rye) is back on the shelves of our ABC stores. $32.99 for a 750.

    The Feb 2009 price list says 101 proof but that's wrong; it's 90 proof.

    Thanks! Is it still 10-year old whiskey?

    Indeed it is. And damned fine 10-year-old whiskey, too. I went into the ABC store specifically to buy a bottle of OGD 86, based on your recommendation in the OGD BIB thread. I like the BIB but had never tried the 86, mainly because I thought it might be too cheap to be any good. I spotted the RR while idly glancing at the rest of the selections, and was pleased to leave the store with not one but two bourbons I'd never before tasted.

    I get it in Pensacola, FL for under 30.00. I've seen full shelves of the brown label in several stores.

    30 seems a little high, but I liked the bottle when I got it a while back. I like the RR101 better, but the RR90 is good stuff.

    Haven't cracked the seal yet -- the other night, the RR trumped the OGD. But I think I'll give it a try tonight, and will report back.

    Buffalo Trace has made into local Birmingham State stores. Old Forrester Birthday 2008 is in Hoover. Now if we could just get some primo Weller, 4 Roses, Rockhill Farm, and 2 other top selfs I would be a happy camper.
