Originally crafted by Kentucky Bourbon Hall-of-Famer Eddie Russell as “Wild Turkey 81”, Wild Turkey Bourbon is aged in American White Oak barrels with the deepest, No. 4 “alligator” char. With notes of sweet vanilla, pear, and hints of spice, this bourbon finishes with a flavor that is full and rich, whether enjoyed straight or with a mixer.
Soft, with sweet raisins, cinnamon, toffee popcorn and a touch of black pepper. There’s also rich sweetness in the form of vanilla, honey and caramelised bananas.
Nice and spicy, with clove and nutmeg perking up the honeyed fruit. Not too sweet (a good thing) and a good, solid punch of spicy fruit.
The soft honey and vanilla notes sit well with the spice.
