  • 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:

    Very floral, super unique so far. Vanilla is very prominent, theres some ethanol and also a lot of butterscotch. Mmmmmm.

  • Taste:

    Thick and rich. Really full mouthfeel. Theres a lot of sweet vanilla, caramel, toffee. Theres some oaky, dry tannins and spice. Lots of floral influence here too. Honestly, if I didnt know the producer, I might have pegged this as a nice 4R pick.

  • Finish:

    Long sweet and oaky. The dry tannins and the sweet, floral notes are really well balanced here.

  • Overall:

    This was a unique, and also complex pick. I really enjoyed it and am more than a little impressed by the complexity here and also the thickness and richness. Like I said above, strangely enough, this was very 4-Rosey to me, and I'm not sure Id be able to pick it as a RRSiB against a 4R blind. I think that says a lot. Well, and so will the Rank I'm going to give it.

  • Score:

    8
