Wild Turkey 81 Takes Off

Jack Bettridge
Posted: June 10, 2011

(continued from page 1)

PALATE: Breaks out in the mouth with the trademark Wild Turkey sweetness (owing to a rich corn content in the mash bill). Then transforms from candy into maple sugar and vanilla into a toastier whiskey (perhaps a function of the deep char in its barrels) with a bit of olive oil.

FINISH: The sugar hangs on in a mid-length finish.

I'll stick with my 101 and Rare Breed. No compromise.
