  • 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:

    Nice floral notes, brown sugar. Ethanol, confectioners sugar and some nice oak.

  • Taste:

    Thick rich mouthfeel, vanilla cream, pepper, clove. Theres some faint toffee, caramel and cocoa also.

  • Finish:

    Medium length and very well tamed heat. Theres a bit of bitter oak, lots of clove, and some caramel here.

  • Overall:

    The palate is easily the best here. Very thick and rich, and features a lot of notes that I love. One thing I'm noticing about these is their great ability to integrate sweet creamy notes with peppery spices and the oak. One downside though is that the oak often lashes out in the finish. This one seems to balance pretty well without becoming a bitter bomb, but its definitely there.
