For us, whiskey is unique in that it’s a spirit that’s purposed to toast any one of the many milestones we experience in life. Be it a marriage, the birth of a child, the passing of a loved one, or a life-changing career move. Whatever the case, it’s the whiskey that serves as a celebratory vessel through which we can appreciate all of life’s blessings, both big and small.
At least that’s the idea behind Wild Turkey’s second release in their Master’s Keep series, a toast to Master Distiller Eddie Russell’s 35th anniversary with Wild Turkey. His career started back in 1981, when a young Edward began working for his father, Master Distiller Jimmy Russell, learning the ropes in every aspect of the business. Now, the two work side by side to craft quality bourbon we all can appreciate. Each batch of Master’s Keep Decades is made from a blend of whiskies aged 10 to 20 years and with notes of oak and caramel, delivering butterscotch, chocolate, and smoke to the palate. It’s available for a limited time and will retail for $150. [Purchase]
