Season 2, Ep 14 - Selecting casks with Wild Turkey's very own Bruce Russell
Joshua and Jason have been to the Wild Turkey distillery four times now. Each time the two were there they got to spend time with the inimitable Eddie Russell, son of the one and only Jimmy Russell, and father to today's guest, Bruce Russell.
While taking Joshua and Jason through Warehouse A to pick some casks for Single Cask Nation (and casks they do pick! two of them to be specific), Bruce talks to the boys about his family (and not just his dad and granddad), learning to write tasting notes with his dad, Jimmy Russell's palate, his own hatred for the word "smooth" (we KNEW he was a good lad!), and Bruce answers, too, questions from Facebook.
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!
