  • Intro:

    Wild Turkey 101 is a NAS offering bottled at 101proof. The mash is standard but barrel entry proof varies based on the era in which the barrels were laid down.

  • Nose:

    Oaky and sweet. Theres nice turkey spice. Not really astringent at all. Sweet toffee, and theres a faint hint of cocoa. Really toned down spices with more oak and sweets. Mmmm.

  • Taste:

    Nice mouthfeel. Not really noticeably thick but rich. Cocoa, toffee, some heat here but not tons. Very subdued. Theres some faint clove and allspice with big vanilla and caramel notes up front.

  • Finish:

    Medium to long with a little growing heat but still not bad.

  • Overall:

    I think this was really nice. It feels a bit older since the spice is less dominant and the sweet, rich notes are more at the forefront.

  • Score:

    7
