    Re: Russell's Reserve Single Barrel

    Normally I'd say take a wait-and-see approach. A lot of labels get approved for products that don't ever get used.

    But you know, I've never been burned by underestimating people.

    It looks like to me that this is a way for them to keep the Russell's Reserve Brand interesting while removing the age statement. Because they've probably figured out by now that we (as in, bourbon enthusiasts) will bitch to high heaven if they drop the 10 year age statement. Lord knows we're still bitching about the old RR 10/101. So maybe they think that we'll forgive them the age statement if they raise the proof to 110 and don't chill filter it.

    I guess the next question is, what about Kentucky Spirit? I can't see how having two NAS single barrel expressions serves them. It would be nice if they could put out one single barrel with an age statement... or at least older juice than the current KS.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.
