Review: Wild TurkeyAugust 16th, 2011
Wild Turkey 81, 40.5%, $20
Comprised of bourbon aged six to eight years old (and seems closer to six than eight). This new (fairly bold for 81 proof) whiskey, while drinkable neat or with a splash of water, really works best as a mixer. Very traditional bourbon notes of caramel, vanilla, mint, cinnamon, sweet corn and orchard fruit. — John Hansell
