This bottling of Wild Turkey has been aged for at least 6 years before coming out of the barrel at 109 proof, it is only diluted slightly before bottling at 101 proof with plenty of pep.
The nose is quite subdued, yet there remains a beautiful toffee sweetness.
Notes of toasty oak and melted vanilla ice cream, a touch of zesty citrus and butterscotch.
The palate is full and rich with notes of cigar box sweetness, pepper, caramel, or ‘Carmel’ should I say? Notes of honey on granary toast with a little melted butter.
The finish is long and rich with spice and toast notes.
America’s biggest-selling premium bourbon, the much-loved Wild Turkey 101 is a richly-flavored concoction with a mellowness that belies its high strength. Wild Turkey is known to barrel its whiskey at a lower entry-proof, meaning the product is a lower proof as it comes off the still prior to maturing. That lower entry proof lends to more flavor from the mash bill (corn, rye, and malted barley). Wild Turkey Bourbon 101 is pulled from the barrel at 109 proof before being proofed down only a touch.
