Wild Turkey Rye Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Big, big spicy aromas of caraway seed and plus a breezy freshness.

    Palate: Warm and mouthfilling, with a lovely dry, characterful spiciness, with some black pepper and notes of caraway seed, rye and fennel seed, plus some faint toffee sweetness.

    Finish: Spicy and peppery.

    Comment: Classic rye whiskey, this would work really well in cocktails.

    Update - I have since tried the Hudson Manhattan Rye (very disappointing, especially at the price) and Bulleit Bourbon (@28% rye and a more mellow pepper finish than the Wild Turkey): 1st Bulleit, 2nd Wild Turkey and (a very distant) 3rd Hudson Manhattan. Best Whisky Mac so far? For a shot, 1/2 oz Lidl single malt (blue), 1/2 oz Bulleit bourbon, 1/4 oz Rochester ginger. (Using Teachers / Wild Turkey Rye / Rochester in the same proportions is a pretty good alternative - less mellow, more fiery.)

    My first try of rye, prompted by a love of a whisky mac followed by a red rye beer. So this Wild Turkey rye was in effect competing with a Teachers/Rochester ginger wine 50:25. Did the same 50:25 whisky/ginger here: liked the nose with the rye better, but found the finish a little too peppery compared to the creamy finish you get with the Teachers. 3/5 for a whisky mac probably isn't that bad really!

    Perhaps a little less smooth than expected, having had various Wild Turkey products over the years, but nevertheless a most enjoyable Rye. I'm having a sip now and reckon it benefits from a little dilution, as compared to neat.

    My first go on a Rye, glad I tried it but I don't think Rye is to my taste. I have had a few other WT variations and this is my least favourite, due to me not liking Rye rather than this not being great.

    Obviously this is nothing like an Islay malt but people who like Islay will go for this. Caraway gives it that oily tang...I really like it
