Review #1426 | Bourbon Review #623

Distiller: Wild Turkey

Brand: Campari

Selection: N/A

ABV: 53.5% ABV

Nose: Sweet cream, orange peel, nice pepper character. Toffee, oak structure, some maple. Faint tobacco.

Taste: Medium to thick mouth feel, sweet toffee. Maple, oak, pepper. Tobacco, some orange peel.

Finish: Short to medium in length, some pepper. Sweet cream, toffee and a nice oak structure.
