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.
Sweet cream, sweet sugar - clove, cinnamon, toffee, caramel. Theres some acetone and astringency here also.
Medium mouthfeel, a little thin. Astringency is higher here than in previous samples. its nice and sweet with a big dallop of oak, cinnamon, toffee and caramel. Some vanilla here too. Its a little tannic, but not as dry as some others. Almost a little nutty, also.
Short but rich while it is around. Its nice and balanced - little heat and lots of flavor. The oak and sweetness here balance pretty well. Its certainly better than the nose would have led me to expect.
This pick was good. The nose was leading me to expect calamity with all of the acetone and astringency but the palate did a good job of balancing the tannins, oakiness and dryness with pleasant notes. Im going to give this a 5.
