This came out about 2004 and was only released in America and Japan. The story goes that the owners asked the legendary distiller, Jimmy Russel to pick a few barrels for a special release.  Little did Mr Russel realise that these barrels were to used for his own 50th anniversary of being employed at Wild Turkey.

In the US it was released at 50.5% while the only other release was tot he Japanese market, was at 55%.  So this one is the Japanese release. This 15yo's mash bill is as follows: 75% Corn, 13% Rye, 12% Malted Barley.

Overall, 5,500 bottles came into the market.

 According to RareBiurd101, "(rich & robust) butterscotch, toasted vanilla & caramel, tobacco, leather, honey-maple, musty charred oak, brown sugar, clove, molasses, pepper, dense herbal & floral spice.  (spicy & slightly earthy) long, warm & flavorful – molasses, maple-oak char, spice drops (cinnamon, clove, licorice), nutmeg, slowly diminishing caramel & vanilla.  It’s about as perfect as a Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey can get.  A Jimmy Russell masterpiece without a doubt".

NB: Cellar scuffed outer box.
