Wild Turkey Masters Keep Decades Bourbon Hard to find Limited Edition! Decades is a blend of Bourbons that have aged somewhere between 10 and 20 years, from barrels coming from the center and upper floors of their McBrayer Rickhouse. Since Eddies first day in 1981 he has had the opportunity to work under and beside his legendary Bourbon making father, Jimmy Russell, who has been with the distillery for 62 years. Eddies profile with the brand has been rising over the years and it is clear he has a handle on the current Bourbons being made and bottled by Wild Turkey. Following in his fathers and grandfathers footsteps, Wild Turkey Master Distiller Eddie Russell decided to dabble in the family business a few miles from his boyhood home at the Wild Turkey Distillery. That was back in 1981, and the new college grad wasnt quite sure the distilling business was for him. Flash forward more than three decades and the student has become the master, celebrating his 35th anniversary and releasing some of the finest whiskies the Bluegrass State has to offer. To mark the occasion, Eddie is releasing Wild Turkey Masters Keep Decades, the second limited-edition Bourbon in the Masters Keep series. For Masters Keep Decades, I went all out and used some of the rarest and most precious barrels in our stocks, said Eddie Russell. The final product is a whiskey with the finesse and deep character of older Bourbon, anchored by the bold, balanced, and vibrant backbone of younger bourbon. I have to say, this is a whiskey I truly love and Ill be holding a few bottles back for my personal collection. With this release, Wild Turkey looks back on the long road to the release of Masters Keep Decades, which started on June 5, 1981, when Edward Freeman Russell put his work boots on for the first time at Wild Turkey. Starting the same way his father did, Eddie had to master every menial job in the distillery before being promoted to supervise the rickhouses where the barrels aged. As he got further along in his career, his father, legendary Master Distiller Jimmy Russell, began to pass down the knowledge he had learned from his own mentors, while instilling in Eddie the values of integrity, craftsmanship and never compromising on quality. In 2015, Eddie earned the illustrious title of Master Distiller and joined his father at the distillerys helm. Today, the two Bourbon Hall of Famers work side by side as the industrys only active father and son master distiller duo, boasting almost 100 years of combined experience. With the same sense of humility, humor and passion for perfection as his father, Eddie continues to influence the ever-expanding whiskey industry and bring new products to market, including Wild Turkey Bourbon (formerly known as Wild Turkey Bourbon 81), Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary, Wild Turkey Masters Keep and now, Wild Turkey Masters Keep Decades. When Eddie started working at the distillery, I didnt make it easy for him. I didnt want people to think I was giving him special treatment, so I made him do a lot of hard, thankless work to earn everyones respect, recalled Master Distiller Jimmy Russell. Watching him step into his own, earn the admiration of his peers and create some of the best whiskies Ive ever tasted has been the most fulfilling experience a father could ask for. Made from a blend of whiskies aged 10 to 20 years, this 104 proof (52% alc. /vol.) Kentucky Straight Bourbon has a nose of oak and caramel. It delivers beautifully intricate notes of butterscotch, dried fruit, chocolate, and smoke, and lingers with a smooth, sweet, and spicy finish.
