  • Intro:

    An export only, extra aged Wild Turkey product. This, more or less, is WTs replacement of the 12yr 101 export product which saw an end in production in 2014. This 13 year old bourbon is diluted to 91pf.

  • Nose:

    Sweet corn, cream, vanilla, some musty wet cardboard (almost a hint of sawdust), faint clove and cinnamon.

  • Taste:

    Thin, not particularly bold, theres clove, pepper, some must, its oddly astringent despite the lower proof. Mild sweetness.

  • Finish:

    Short, but tasty. This has a little more kick, theres some odd astringency, followed by clove, cinnamon, vanilla and a hint of caramel.

  • Overall:

    This is good, but not particularly noteworthy. I think the dilution really kills it here since the mouthfeel is thin, the palate isnt particularly impressive and the finish is just ok. I would love to try this bumped up to 101 or higher. Overall, its not bad. But its nothing to write home about, let alone import. Rank 5.
