  • Intro:

    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.

  • Nose:

    Sharp, astringent pepper. Clove, sweet maple. Oats??

  • Taste:

    Hot but sweet. The clove, cinnamon and pepper really pack a punch here. Lots more spice than Im used to on this one. Theres lots and lots of heat.

  • Finish:

    Short and hot. Lots of clove, lots of caramel but also a good deal of heat.

  • Overall:

    I wasn't wildly impressed with this one, but it seems to be a turkey outlier. Perhaps a turkey lost in the bushes. The heat was a bit more than I expected but it was consistent and stuck around. As a result, I'm going to give this a 5. It just wasn't as balanced and nuanced as the rest. Still good, don't get me wrong, but not up to spec.

  • Score:

    5
