Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    • Nose

      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.

    • Palate

      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.

    • Finish

      The soft honey and vanilla notes sit well with the spice.

    big D,

    I think if your going to get a bottle of wild Turkey you should try the 101. That said for the price this isnt bad. I think at this price its worth buying a bulliet bourbon that 45 proof really lets the bourbon flavour come though.

    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.

    Matt D,

    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.
