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.
Honey, maple, light cocoa. Some ethanol, light melon and stewed fruits. Really dark and fruity, very rich, without being an oak overdrive.
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.
Medium length, cocoa, caramel and lots of tobacco. Fruity character sort of diminishes to give way to clove, tobacco and cocoa.
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.
