  • Intro:

    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.

  • Nose:

    Strong clove, corn, vanilla, brown sugar and cigar tobacco

  • Taste:

    Pretty good mouthfeel. Very clove heavy, vanilla, spice, some astringency. Mild orange. Some heat. Definitely Wild Turkey.

  • Finish:

    Medium but a bit of heat. Some astringency, lots of clove, vanilla and some faint cocoa.

  • Overall:

    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.
