Back in bourbon country. I am developing a fondness for the matured southern dram, that’s for sure. Wild Turkey 81 is… getting there. I wasn’t blown away, but there was enough merit to look into some of the others in the line. The website says it’s aged 6-8 years, so there’s no age expression on the bottle.
The 81 is the proof of it, by the way.
Dan – woody, corn, syrupy, smokey
Simon – onion? sweet
Dan – very very smooth, then spiciness
Simon – buttery, spicy, warm on the back of the throat
Dan – very dry, balanced, sweet wood
Simon – citrus, light, dry
Try it? Yeah. Buy it? well…
