I'm starting to think that when it comes to bourbons that I like Turkeys. The Rare Breed delivers more, but this is well above the bar.

Nose

cherries, vanilla, a bitter oak and some herbs

Palate

a thin mouthfeel that starts with cherries, spices and caramel

Finish

it starts with spices and some peppery burn going into an oaky tannic, then some vanilla at the end

General description

A higher proof point then its partner at 81 proof. Same 6-8 year age range of whiskeys blended together.

A much better improvement to its 81 proof counter. This isn't a bourbon for low proof drinkers but is great for sipping. The higher proof brings out some darker and richer flavors. And for $5 difference, you can't go wrong. A great casual sipper. This is worth the $5 price jump. Another reason why Wild Turkey is on the map for me.

Rating: 75/100, 1 point for value, this could have been easily a $30 bourbon and I'd still buy it, so 76/100. (Purchased at $27.99)

Nose

On the nose, Berry is immediate, with some honey, vanilla, and baking spice. Then harmonious scents lemon citrus, paint thinner with some Tobacco, caramel, and some coco.

Palate

On the first sip, rye is the focus with this high rye recipe with some chocolate, berry, caramel, and vanilla. Second Sip, Got some lemon citrus with some baking spice, honey, rasin, and vanilla.

Finish

The finish is more complex then its 81 proof counter part with some rye spice, rasin, berry, and coco. Medium-Short finish.

Notes: Very rich flavor, complex enough to hold one’s interest. Pleasantly sweet and well balanced. Good for sipping neat, and possibly also mixed. My go-to Whiskey.
Slightly reminds one of George Dickel 12, but much much better. Also a lot like Buffalo Trace, and Eagle Rare but better.

General description

Kind of surprised me. It’s not amazing or my favorite, but for a kind of generic $20 bourbon it was better than I expected and affordable/good enough to sip daily. Not a special occasion bourbon but still solid.

Nose

Brown sugar/maple. Sweet. I don’t get much alcohol on the nose which is pleasant for this 50.5 abv

Palate

Oak/bitter (pleasing to me), rye spicyness, a good 5-15 seconds in my mouth moving it around my tongue and chewing it brings out some sweet vanilla and just a HINT of cherry from time to time. Ultimately coming back around to bitter oak.

Finish

Bitter oak. Pleasant burn. Pretty short though. I like the nose and palate much more than the finish of this whiskey, as it is a hair to bitter ( I like the bitter just not this much) all the way through it’s short finish or I would have given it another 2-3 points.

As always we start description about smell: sweet with notes of fried nuts, on the far nose there is an aroma of paint and varnish.

Next - the taste: corn syrup with bitter, typical for this type of bourbon.

After-taste: medium with notes of oil paint and cinnamon.

In general, this whiskey is very balanced and tasty in its high degree - 101 proof.

General description

it's hard to beat a classic

Nose

Sweet carSweet caramel, bourbon spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. The vanilla is pronounced and brings with it some sweet cream. The wood is a bit hidden until you add a splash of water and then it rolls out next to the vanilla. rolls out next to the vanilla.

Palate

Sweet corn followed by vanilla and red licorice. Some citrus, a slight grainy malt and a bit of smoky ash round out the undiluted flavor. Add some water and the oak begins to express itself much more and the corn becomes even more prominent.

Finish

Carmel,grains ,and fruit

On the nose I get caramel and leather, fruitcake, cherries, and oak. The taste is cherries and berries, caramel, cinnamon, and white pepper. The finish is long and spicy with a dry oak.

General description

Not much hint of alcohol on the nose despite being 101 proof, but it does remind me of a woodshop. Taste is medicinal and sweet with an oily and slightly bitter finish. Definite value but too many other bourbons to experience to keep me from coming back.

Nose

wood, oak, sweetness

Palate

medicine, herbal, sweet

General description

Because of its availability, an low cost ($25 UDS) 'Turkey is likely one of everyone's first bourbons. That said, there are many other better bourbons if one just "sips" around.

Palate

A little harsh for my taste.
