  • 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:

    Sweet corn, toffee, butter. Mild ethanol. Smells nice and sweet with very little astringency.

  • Taste:

    Surprisingly nice mouthfeel. Sweet corn, vanilla, caramel and a good bit of clove. Oakiness here is drying and tannic although much less so than others. Nice balance here. Sweet, savory, well balanced

  • Finish:

    Nice finish. Some heat but its long and rich. Not too much astringency.

  • Overall:

    I think this pick is pretty darn good. By pick, I mean single barrel, but the same rules still go. There's definitely gobs of variation in all of these but I enjoyed this one quite a bit.

  • Score:

    6
