Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Sweet corn and baking spices with a leathery dryness is backed with a peppery and aggressive richness and notes honey, nuts and black tea. Big and powerful. (Mar 2012)
Smooth and richly colored, Wild Turkey Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey is a genuine super-premium bourbon carefully crafted in the heart of Kentucky and offers a lesson in traditional American values, most notably, the refusal to compromise on standards of excellence. Jimmy Russell notes that unlike some of its competitors,"We make Wild Turkey the old-fashioned way. It's a totally natural process which takes substantially more time and money, but we believe it's worth it." Wild Turkey 101 has an exceptionally soft, but rich aroma for a high proof bourbon, due to quality at all stages of its production. The taste is an American classic with caramel and vanilla and notes of honey and oranges. The finish is very long, rich and full-bodied, powerful, yet soothing.
