    Wild Turkey

  • ABV:


  • Age:


  • Price:
  • Intro:

    This is a single barrel of bourbon from Wild Turkey under the Russells Reserve label. This was picked by a variety of bourbon distillery Master Distillers for a springtime festival in Kentucky. This hails from D-6.

  • Nose:

    Honey, maple, light cocoa. Some ethanol, light melon and stewed fruits. Really dark and fruity, very rich, without being an oak overdrive.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. Minor heat. Cherry, oak and tobacco. Some waffle cone, nougat and caramel. Some bitterness, but nothing too offensive. The red fruits are really prominent: cherry, currant and some blackberry. Lots of clove and trademark Turkey spice.

  • Finish:

    Medium length, cocoa, caramel and lots of tobacco. Fruity character sort of diminishes to give way to clove, tobacco and cocoa.

  • Overall:

    I guess these guys sort of know what there doing. I really enjoyed this, as it strayed from being an oaky spice bomb and introduced some really nice tobacco and dark fruits.

  • Score:
