    Well made Kentucky Bourbon with a charcoal filter finish - like its Tennessee cousins.
    6-8 years maturation is very respectable for a bourbon - though that is not cast in stone or written on the bottle.
    A smooth one if you don't love the usual bourbon spicy burn from all that virgin oak so you could rate it as a "gateway" bourbon.
    Smells like a typical bourbon but not in your face - a gentleman of sorts - subdued notes compared with the 101 or Rare Breed.
    The bourbon high proof hardcore folk have snubbed this one but if you're an occasional bourbon drinker like me then you may well appreciate its more mellow yet rich flavors.
    Will definitely keep a bottle of this in my bar along with the Rare Breed.

    Pickles?
    Vanilla sweetness and a hand full of pickles? Something weird about this bourbon but it was ok

    Wild Turkey Longbranch is ripened for about eight years and is made in small quantities.
    It is the result of a collaboration between master distiller Eddie Russell and Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey. One noticeable detail is that the whiskey is filtered with a mixture of Texas mesquite wood and American oak charcoal.
    • Nose
      Creamy and sweet: vanilla, caramel and toffee. Nutmeg and hints of oak add complexity to the whole.
    • Taste
      Also creamy on the palate with a mixture of sweet and fruity notes such as honey, orange and a hint of vanilla. After a while in the glass, spicy layers take over.
    • Finish
      Sweet and spicy oak. Slightly dry.

    The actor Matthew McConaughey was involved in the development of this Wild Turkey expression, and a nice job he has done too.
    The publicity photos with McConaughey make the whole presentation very attractive, thankfully the whiskey does not disappoint.
    Plenty of flavor, very much in the Wild Turkey tradition.
    Very pleasant, well worth trying.
