Wild Turkey 101 is a NAS offering bottled at 101 proof. The mash is standard but barrel entry proof varies based on the era in which the barrels were laid down.
Thick, rich caramel. Much less clove, a little dankness to it. Sweet, doughy. has a lot of the same notes, ironically, as the 61 crown I have. really caramel forward.
Almost no heat, whatsoever. Noticeably thicker than the 2004. Less clove, less spice. More tobacco, caramel, toffee. Noticeably sweeter. A funky little hint of orange or lemon zest. Absolutely turkey but a hair different. Bit of cocoa.
Medium, pretty mild. Little clove, mild astringency. Very musty and sweet.
This is very different than modern WT101. I think I like it a bit better than the 2004 but its also not as bright as todays product. I think its good, I'm really a sucker for sweets so this is nice but it could get cloying after a dram or two without that really noticeable Turkey spice to even it out. I'm going to give this a Rank 7. I'd be content with a bottle and I did really enjoy this.
