  • 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 cream, cloves, buttery brown sugar, molasses and a fair bit of oak.

  • Taste:

    Sweet cream, dry tannic oak, spicy heat comes to play. Not really peppery, but theres a lot of heat for 55%. Some nice cocoa and toffee on the back.

  • Finish:

    Medium length but hot, bitter and dry.

  • Overall:

    There wasn't a lot here and I didn't love what was. The nose was really nice, but I think that was its best asset. Its hard to express, but this wasn't as hot, bitter or dry as another bottle I had, so Ill give this a 5. I thought it was just fine, but not exceptional, or to the inverse, exceptionally bad. Just not really remarkable.

  • Score:

    5
