Review #674 | /r/Bourbon Review #388 – Wild Turkey 8/101 1984 Decanter
The Schtick: This is from 1984 and is labeled as 8/101.
Distiller: Wild Turkey
Bottler: Wild Turkey
ABV: 50.5% ABV
Age: 8 Years
Nose: Rich, moist tobacco. Citrus peel. Vanilla, cream, syrupy cocoa. Really rich.
Taste: Medium/thick mouthfeel, no heat. Rich vanilla, toffee, cream. Burnt sugar. Faint stewed fruits. Lots of cocoa, faint orange peel again.
Finish: Long, rich and sweet. No heat. Faint pepper and really nice stewed fruits notes.
Overall: Wow. Where was this when I did the Gobble series? Probably my favorite Turkey experience to date. Worth it for the lead poisoning.
Thanks for reading!
