Wild Turkey 9 Year Bourbon

"The Hot Pickle"

Beast Masters Club Exclusive
Russell’s Reserve Private Barrel Bourbon
Distilled on New Year’s Eve 2007
Aged 9 Years in Warehouse G, 6th Floor
110 Proof


Of the dozens of bourbons that Beast Masters Club tasted in Kentucky this spring, this private barrel of Wild Turkey is the one we’ve been dreaming about since we got back.  

Second generation Wild Turkey Master Distiller Eddie Russell took us to his oldest rickhouse, built in 1890, to choose our Russell’s Reserve private barrel. Eddie told us that his winter distillations were usually special, and that Warehouse G had recently produced some superb barrels. Not surprisingly, after tasting a dozen different casks we ended up with a Warehouse G barrel distilled on New Year’s Eve 2007. 




  Episode 24: One Bourbon, One Scotch & One Beer Battle - Nate Woodruff vs Shane Helmick


Once again two intrepid contenders step into our Whiskey Thunderdome - this time to decide who will be named the first ever One Bourbon, One Scotch & One Beer Champion by our Beast Masters Members!


Enter the worthy contenders: Nate Woodruff of Whisky With A View and Shane Helmick of How to Drink Whisky. Each brought the eponymous, One Bourbon, One Scotch & One Beer. Each listened to George Thorogood records nonstop for a minimum of two weeks.

Enter the esteemed Judges: Dana “Mrs. Beast” Zeller, Jake “The Whiskey Warrior” Cahill and Ben "The Nicknameless" Paluba. Each has taken a solemn vow to guide the Beast Masters through this epic battle and inform the club wisely in casting their votes to ultimately decide who will reign as One Bourbon, One Scotch & One Beer Champion. Remember, the judges will certainly offer their evaluations and criticisms in spades, but ultimately, the audience decides the fate of our two hopeful prospects.

Enter our wise host and master of ceremonies: Steve “SmokyBeast” Zeller. Keeping all these players in line and sober enough to do their jobs is no easy task.  

Who will be vanquished? Who shall prevail to hold and defend the title of OBOSOB Champion? Draw near, listen and be amazed by this tale of skill, courage, bravery and beverages.

Don’t miss our next Dusty Whiskey battle on October 27th between Josh Feldman of The Coopered Tot and Josh Richholt owner of The Well in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
