Spending 3.5 to 4 hours with Eddie Russell, drinking bourbon, selecting casks, and sitting down for a long format interview? It's not a bad way to spend a Friday afternoon! During their conversation Eddie talks about designing special releases, his love for Wild Turkey "Cheesy Gold Foil," and the passing of the Wild Turkey familial heritage torch from his dad, to him, and down to his son, Bruce. All this conversation was had over a glass of 1977 8yo 101 bourbon. Again, not a bad way to spend a Friday afternoon!
So, as usual, have a seat, have a pour, and listen in. Unless you're driving. If you're driving, be smart and stay sober but be sure to listen into the conversation!
