  • 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 and fruity, gingerbread and caramel. Doughy, there is some ethanol but its faint. Vanilla, fruity spice and clove. This is very off profile from what Ive tasted of the other barrels - but I like it. Sweet, fruity, some nice gingerbread. Mmmm.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel, there is some mild heat. Sweet turkey spice, doughy caramel and creamy vanilla. Lots of fruity notes, almost like a faintly spicy alberta rye. Theres also quite a bit of toffee here and the clove is very subdued.

  • Finish:

    Long finish and nice and mild - no real heat here. Vanilla, lots of tobacco, leather and cocoa. Very off profile, but very good.

  • Overall:

    I really like how unique this is. Its off profile, but not in a bad way.

  • Score:

    7
