Price: $50/375ml. Issue: Summer 2019 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

A combination of 6, 8, 10, and 12 year old bourbons distilled at Wild Turkey. It has that glorious peanut-rich Turkey nose, along with orange soda, Golden Delicious apples, cooked blackberries and blueberries, pomegranate syrup, white pepper, cinnamon, ginger, and iced tea. Beautifully balanced on the palate, with plenty of spice, roasted peanuts, cherry cough syrup, blackberry jam, cola, dill, and dark chocolate. It ends lusciously, with warming spices, chocolate, and oak.
