Whisky Reviews for Wild Turkey Straight Rye Whiskey

  1. Koning scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    This was a complete surpise, luckily I had a large sample so I could taste it twice. I knew rye whiskey isn't as sweet as corn whiskey, but it's also less spicy than expected. Instead it has fresh green fruits and a rubbery edge which is hard to score (do I like it or not?)
    • Nose
      80 80
      Unusual nose which takes some time to get used to. Let's try to describe it: green apple gelato, sports shoe, detergent, a bit vegetal followed by the more usual bourbon sweetness (vanilla, raspberry,..)
    • Taste
      80 80
      Green apples, vanille, lime. Has a chemical edge (rubber?) that translates into a some smokiness.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Much more spicy now. Vanilla sweetness, green fruits (apple, lime) and green tea even. That odd sports shoe or rubbery scent remains.

    Actually not so obvious rye - usually it shows a bitter note in the end but here it's really just little
    • Nose
      84 84
      Liquorice galore, charred oak and vanilla, little leafy, some spicy notes and green tea, dry rye
    • Taste
      82 82
      Subtle sweetness, fruit tea, more charred oak and vanilla, little medicinal, cough drops, more liquorice, Dr. Pepper Cherry
    • Finish
      80 80
      Medium long, warm, still fruity, more liquorice, just a tad bitter
