Review #258. Wild Turkey Distillers Reserve 13yr Export

Review #258 – Wild Turkey 13yr Export (Japan)

Whiskey Network Review #258 | /r/Bourbon Review #142 – Wild Turkey 13yr Export

Nose: Turkey spice, cinnamon, clove, cinnamon bun and sticky vanilla frosting. Molasses, brown sugar, some citrusy orange peel

Taste: Medium thickness but oily coating and a very nice mouthfeel. Cinnamon, clove, oak, molasses, some odd Gobble funk, very complex and layered here. To me this feels like 101 turned up to 11.

Finish: Long and complex with a very heavy handed dose of that Wild Turkey sugar and spice.

Overall: This was a great dram and only helped make a great holiday even better. It was thick, complex and delicious and had everything I love from Wild Turkey. I wouldn’t bend over and pay secondary for it, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. I’m giving this dram a Rank 7.
