Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit
Distillery: Wild Turkey Distillery, Lawrenceburg, KY
Age: 8.5 - 9.5 YR
Nose: Dark fruit, toffee, Werther’s Original, brown sugar and cinnamon are left behind with smaller pools of wood and vanilla emerging right before being covered back up by the spice wave.
Palate: Again that wonderful Wild Turkey spice is upfront and combines forces with notes of wood, caramel, rye, cinnamon, corn, dried dark fruit and a touch of honey. There is an almost malted like sweetness to it that slides through in the back with hints of citrus.
Notes: The Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit is single barrel Wild Turkey 101 that has a bit more age to it and, being a single barrel, it also means that unless you get something from the same barrel as me, you’re going to have a slightly different experience.
