  • Intro:

    Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit is a single barrel Wild Turkey product aged somewhere from 8.5ish to 9.5ish years. Its bottled at 101 proof with a mashbill consisting of 75% corn, 13% rye and 12% malt.

  • Nose:

    Really nice oak and cocoa. Toffee, vanilla, caramel. No astringenct or overly tannic stuff here.

  • Taste:

    Nice mouthfeel. Pretty rich and sweet. Reminds me a lot of the previous non-pick I did. Sweet, but with less tannic oaky notes. Lots of vanilla. Some good clove here. Not too spicy. Caramel. It almost tastes a bit like a dessert dram without a lot of astringency dragging it down. Almost doughy at times, like a good loaf of a sweet bread or a pastry.

  • Finish:

    Long, sweet and lovely. I dare say that this is the best of the bunch finish wise, also. All sweetness, some nice musty sweetness like a dough here also.

  • Overall:

    I think this might be my favorite of the bunch. Solid, sweet, leaning a hair sweeter and more toffee vanilla forward rather than dry and tannic and oaky. Really nice here. I think this ties with my other two favorites for a Rank 7. I think the general consensus here on WTKS is pretty clear. When its on, its on. When its not....run.
