  1. Scherenschnitte scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Wild Turkey 101 50.5% ABV (Bottled 2020):

    Gobble Gobble! This went down super fast as I found it to be an easy sipper. Good stuff but I think I prefer the aggressive burst of flavor from barrel proof bourbons on the palate. This is lacking length in the finish as well but it's hard to imagine a better value available in bourbon.

    Score: 82/100
    • Nose
      Mostly vanilla and butterscotch. There is a slightly musty component along with some secondary fruity elements.
    • Taste
      Predominant flavor of toffee/butterscotch followed by spicy notes of cinnamon, black pepper, and toasted oak. There is a really nice interplay between rich sweetness and spice.
    • Finish
      Shortish length with lingering spicy toffee sweetness.

    Summer whiskey 2019.
    Beautifully spicy Kentucky Bourbon, which also brings its own note when mixed with cola.
    I would do it again: D

  4. PaulDvorak scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Rectilinear, basic, with the aroma of solvent, dried apricots, caramel and butter, the taste is dense, slightly sour, with notes of cinnamon, milk chocolate and nuts, tart finish, with nuances of wood, nuts and chocolate.
    Very sensible bourbon in the ratio of price / quality. Intelligent fortress, organoleptic level. You can take it and drink it safely, once again the basic inexpensive bourbon is very surprising.

    RATING: 82pts - [n21, t20, f20, b21] → | 80-82: Ordinary |
