  • ABV:

  • Age:

    NAS

  • 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, caramel, no spice and theres some toffee and tobacco.

  • Taste:

    Spicy. Hot and thin profile. Theres some vanilla, some oak but its bitter and astringent. Im having a hard time getting much past that, and thats disappointing. Theres some faint cocoa and tobacco, but not much more.

  • Finish:

    Hot and short. Its oaky, dry, tannic. Theres tobacco, cracked pepper, a hint of citrus and thats about it.

  • Overall:

    This really wasn't great unfortunately. Hot, thin and bitter are the best descriptors that I have. Can't win them all.

  • Score:

    4
