  • Intro:

    This is the final phase of Gobble Til You Wobble and Ill be looking at both the Bourbon and Ryes that are sold under that line. Bourbons first, ryes second. This is a modern offering from Wild Turkey with the higher entry proof. It is diluted to 110 pf and sold as a single barrel offering across the nation. Many stores have been able to do picks of these products, and extra information is available as a result. It is, still, a NAS product, though.

  • Nose:

    Sweet vanilla, creamy cake notes, cocoa. Theres some nice fruity baking spice, it almost reminds me of some Alberta WP notes. Lots of sweetness here, and that creamy, buttery cake note is delicious.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel, sweet caramel is a big one here. Pepper, some faint orange zest, vanilla and cocoa are really prominent here. Its complex and delicious - I enjoy the nuance of the cracked pepper spice against some sweet, doughy, cake-y, notes.

  • Finish:

    Long finish with clove first, followed by sweet cream and some really signature Turkey spice.

  • Overall:

    This is delicious, and has an impressive amount of complexity. The finish was especially impressive.

  • Score:

    7
