  3. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    These older Wild Turkeys are such good drinkers. You cannot not like this, if you are at all a bourbon drinker. Mind u, they are not cheap anymore  (a 1986 bottling of 8/101 would probably fetch around $375 or even more, even though my bottle still has a price sticker of $16.65. Such balance, and good  mouthfeel, with creamy caramel, soft cinnamon, toffee, and dried dark fruits. Like all 8/101, there is almost no alcoholic sting. Wonderful representation of what a great bourbon should be. Whenever I have an opened bottle of older WT 8/101's, they get finished quick!
