  • Price:
    $$$$$
  • 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:

    Cloves, turkey spice, very soft and buttery. Faint vanilla.

  • Taste:

    Thin mouthfeel, sweet but no heat. Sweet vanilla, very dessert forward with cream, cloves, toffee, some faint cocoa. Its light, dainty, sweet.

  • Finish:

    Medium, tannic and drying with lots of vanilla, cocoa and some caramel.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this was fine, but not impressive. For 55% it was oddly light and thin. If the tannins in the finish would have toned down to match the daintiness of the nose and palate, it would have likely scored higher. Oh well, win some and lose some!

  • Score:

    5
