An 81 proof (40.5%ABV) bourbon crafted by Wild Turkey associate distiller Eddie Russell, son of master distiller Jimmy. It's a high rye mash matured in heavily charred casks for big flavour at a more approachable ABV than the 101.Tasting Notes (1)
- Black Pepper
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Soft, with sweet raisins, cinnamon, toffee popcorn and a touch of black pepper. There’s also rich sweetness in the form of vanilla, honey and caramelised bananas.
Nice and spicy, with clove and nutmeg perking up the honeyed fruit. Not too sweet (a good thing) and a good, solid punch of spicy fruit.
The soft honey and vanilla notes sit well with the spice.

Absolutely the best bang for your buck. Love the flavor.
As an Irish whiskey drinker (who loves a good scotch), I said I'd give bourbon a proper try. Wild Turkey 81 was the first stop, have to say a little disappointed, no real flavour or defining feature. Didn't really detect the notes expected. For the price (in Ireland) it did not meet my expectations based on reviews I have read. Guess it onwards and upwards. 2.5 star would be more accurate.
Flavourful and smooth. A very nice neat sipping bourbon
My first taste of Wild Turkey 80 proof ina side by side with Jim Beam White label today. I’ve found a new bourbon! Enjoyed the mild but distinctive hint of fruit? nutty? spice? what I’m not certain, but I liked it. Will try some others, but being familiar with JB, Jack Daniels, Canadian Club, and Crown Royal, and preferring Wild Turkey to them all it may be some time before I find a worthy contender.
Bang on for around £23. £16 when on offer at where every little helps. High quality bourbon, not too sweet due to rye content (which I love). You can't go wrong.
