Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Big and peppery to start, with rye and caraway seed following. Toffee sweetness sits at the back.

    Palate: Intense and layered, with waves of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, hazelnuts and mint.

    Finish: Long and spicy.

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Big! Peppery, spicy, lots of rye and caraway seed, but still fresh, with some toffee sweetness in there, too.

    Palate: Beautiful concentration, with waves of spicy cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, toasted hazelnuts and a faint, fresh, minty note.

    Finish: The wide-ranging spiciness lasts for a very long time.

    Comment: This is a big-hitting bourbon, loaded with punchy spice. Absolutely delicious.

    I agree with Gatekeeper, let it sit for about five minutes. The nose is beautiful, peppery with some toffee and sweet oak. On the palate, it's cinnamon, hazelnuts with a slight mint note, also almost buttery in the mouthfeel. Finish is nice and long. Easy drinking despite the alcohol content. I can see why people love this so much.

    Just fell in love with this one. I prefer it neat, but here is a secret... Let it breathe for 5 or 6 minutes then take a long, satisfying sniff. It really opens it up to a fantastic nose. Leather, oak, rye spice and hazelnuts. Then, close your eyes and take a sip. Pure indulgence!

    Good solid bourbon. It gives a slight burn, a good burn though. Packs a punch and a decent price to boot

    Budget friendly and my absolute go-to bourbon. It burns so good and one of the best sub 30 buck whiskeys on the market. With the great spicy notes you get on this and the good whiskey burn it's hard to pass this one up. It's simply the best value bourbon and I would dare say rivals the more expensive bourbon i've tried.

    Fantastic bourbon! Deceptively smooth. Delicious and straightforward. One of the finest in its class. If you haven't experienced WT 101, then get yourself a bottle and experience it yourself.

    Yes, put me down as someone who really likes it. I have some in my glass right now. (Neat, the way God intended.) My uncle used to drink only Wild Turkey, and I know why.

    I am a little biased because I love bourbon. But I used to only drink wild turkey on thanksgiving to be funny and it was good. But after reading up a lot on wild turkey the history of it and Jimmy Russel. It’s hard not to be my favorite drink.

    My first good bourbon, and a bulls eye. I am a scotch malt drinker and this is something else, totally. However, it is as complex and interresting as a good malt. Spicy, sweet and dark. Hints of cola, jam, nutmeg, mint, tea and caramel play the nose and tongue. Very well balanced.

    Bought this for my boyfriend after reading many reviews. When we first met he was a solid Jack Daniel's fan, so I purchased Single Barrel and he loved the smoothness. We then went out and he sampled some Eagle Rare 10 yr old, so I bought some of that and enjoyed it, again falling it's taste and smoothness. After looking around I noticed the Wild Turkey brand pop up in reviews, and a LOT of people love this drink for its smoothness and how surprisingly strong it is, although not over powered. As a surprise I bought this and my word, he's never looked back. It's too smooth. He simply can't put it down as it goes down a real treat, and he's said by far one of the best buys to date. With only a third left in the bottle it'll soon be time for another purchase.

    Simply the best bourbon I know. Perfectly balanced between spicyness and sweetness, complex yet accessible, lots of body and great finish - and totally unapologetic: does not try to even vaguely ressemble any other spirit. If you don't like bourbon, this ain't for you. If you like bourbon, you'll find there's no need to look further: if there is anything out there at all that will top this, it comes at several times the price.

    This is the one that gobbles at you. Have been sampling all the popular bourbons and ryes that are twice the price. This is better. Be careful though, it's smoothness will trick you into the sucker punch of the proof. I wanted more to sip just because of the elevated flavors from that proof but knew better than to go on! I'll come back tomorrow.

    I'm sad I didn't discover this sooner. Such a high alcohol percentage that doesn't take away from it's amazing flavor. Defiantly a must try.

    Outclasses bourbon at much higher price points. This urban legend that it is bottom shelf rain water inferior to jack Daniels needs to stop. This is what bourbon should taste like.

    Best bourbon I've had. I don't find it harsh on the throat at all, and has a pleasant sweetness to it. It's 50.5% but you wouldn't notice. This can make it deadly, trust me!
