Wild Turkey 101 is a NAS offering bottled at 101cproof. The mash is standard but barrel entry proof varies based on the era in which the barrels were laid down.
Strong clove, corn, vanilla, brown sugar and cigar tobacco
Pretty good mouthfeel. Very clove heavy, vanilla, spice, some astringency. Mild orange. Some heat. Definitely Wild Turkey.
Medium but a bit of heat. Some astringency, lots of clove, vanilla and some faint cocoa.
Overall, this is pretty nice. Upon reveal, I was pretty surprised that this was one of the more recent export 8 yr bottles. I definitely couldnt tell through, what seemed to be, the additional astringency and clove heavy notes that I pick up in current WT 101 NAS. That being said, I still really enjoyed it. Sniffing it screams MIGHTY GOBBLE which is half the enjoyment of having a dram of WT to me anyways. Nose is delicious.
