  • 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 104 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:

    Rich caramel, buttery toffee, nougat. Cracked pepper, rich Turkey spices, some cloves and allspice. Butter cream, faint orange zest and a hint of tobacco.

  • Taste:

    Thick and rich with little to no heat. Faintly fruity and spicy, with lots of caramel, toffee and some dry tannins.

  • Finish:

    Long, sweet and oaky. Sweet, buttery and some nice pepper. Very well balanced.

  • Overall:

    I really liked this also. It seems to follow a more typical trajectory as far as these ryes have gone but the oak is very much kept in check.

  • Score:

    7
