  • 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:

    Caramel and big butter cream. Sweet vanilla, allspice and some nice oaky backbone.

  • Taste:

    Thich and rich mouthfeel which is nice. Some heat but lots of caramel, honey, vanilla, pepper and oak. Surprisingly, it grows hotter with time and not the opposite. Hmmm.

  • Finish:

    Medium length but theres a bit of heat. Theres some maple here, a bit of pepper and then it grows really drying and tannic.

  • Overall:

    I really loved the nose and the start of the palate wasn't too bad. It didn't really maintain, or improve though and grew too oaky/tannic/drying for my tastes.

  • Score:

    5
