Whisky reviews for Wild Turkey 2012 JWC

  1. berkshirewhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasting Notes (et al) from SCN:

    Color: Amber

    Nose: Rock candy, and quite nutty – think macadamia – Red Hots™ candy, Boston Baked Beans, chocolate cherries, and a good whack of warehouse dankness. Crushed red pepper flakes and warm oak/oak spice.

    Palate: Grain forward with a pleasing oakiness and a lovely drying quality around the edges of the tongue but brown rye spice and echoes of dill around the edges (this is a fair bit more herbaceous than expected) with fresh tubers and Thai chillies but also freshly cracked peppercorns and then the sour ground cherries rear their beautiful heads!

    Finish: A return of the pronounced oakiness from the nose, praline ice cream and bright lemon zest

    On the label: Spirit of Collaboration

    The history of the Wild Turkey brand is a long and storied one. While we can start with Thomas Ripy way back in 1891, the real story of the brand began when Austin Nichols launched Wild Turkey as a Non-Distiller Producer (NDP) brand in 1942. At that time, Mr Nichols did not have his own distillery. However, he remedied that in 1971 when he purchased the Boulevard distillery, changing the name to the Wild Turkey Distillery.

    With the ever changing whiskey landscape, Wild Turkey may very well be the last American distillery to employ three generations of one family. Jimmy Russell has been employed for over sixty years, his son Eddie for over thirty years, and recently Eddie's son, Bruce, has returned home to Wild Turkey to begin his training as he looks to follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather.
