An 81 proof (40.5%ABV) bourbon crafted by Wild Turkey associate distiller Eddie Russell, son of master distiller Jimmy. It's a high rye mash matured in heavily charred casks for big flavour at a more approachable ABV than the 101.
Soft, with sweet raisins, cinnamon, toffee popcorn and a touch of black pepper. Sweetness in the form of vanilla, honey and caramelised bananas.
Nice and spicy, with clove and nutmeg perking up the honeyed fruit. Not too swee and a solid punch of spicy fruit.
Soft honey and vanilla notes sit well with the spice.
