  • 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:

    Like golden grahams. Sweet cinnamon, spice, caramel. no astringency here. Just pleasant sweetness

  • Taste:

    Nice rich mouthfeel. Sweet caramel, and lots of it. Oak is very well in check here with almost a cocoa undertone. Delicious. Caramel, some doughy sweetness.

  • Finish:

    Long, mildly astringent but sweet and savory.

  • Overall:

    This is really nice. T his is probably the most balanced modern pick I've had so far. The sweetness is there, the oak is there, the dry tannins are there but all play very nicely. This also had a lack of that off astringency in the palate which really is what really impressed me. It showed up in the finish but not too strongly.

  • Score:

    7
