Wild Turkey Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey with Dan, Ryan & Goran

IMG_20131101_190808Continued attempts by team iScotch to find a rye we can actually get behind – Dan is probably our most rye-positive member while Ryan ironically insists no good rye exists. Either way, this is not that rye.

We’ve reviewed a Wild Turkey before: decent but not amazing. This is the rye equivalent – Wild Turkey Rye remains mid-to-lower-range, accessible but not noteworthy. ¬†Here’s what we thought:

Dan – caramel corn
Simon – definitely a rye, copper, sushi
Goran – lemon grass, white chocolate
Ryan – bourbony, only half rye, leather

Dan – love it “dry spicy bourbon” caramel, corn,
Simon – rust, damp old grain, spicy
Goran – spicy for sure, not buttery, rye
Ryan – nerds candy, no corn, thorough, lot of mouthfeel, unusual

Dan – a little dry, rye spice, super appetizing, just enough caramel
Simon – way sweeter
Goran – mint, cinnammon
Ryan – green olive

Wild Turkey Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey – 40.5% 750ml – $32.70 – Kentucky

Try it? Nah. Buy it? No.
