Whiskies (19)

Crown Royal
Blended - Canada - 40.00%
8 Like Seagram's VO Gold, a delicate but wonderfully dextrous blend.

Crown Royal
Blended - Canada - 40.00%
7 A characterful and clean whisky, with a rich proportion of rye in the mashbill. Oak is well integrated. Would be pleasant with a pecan pie.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Crown Royal Special Reserve
Blended - Canada - 40.00%
8 Much more character.

Crown Royal SR Special Reserve
Blended - Canada - 40.00%
7 A mild character, soft and pleasant but lacking nerve. Fine for a sweet tooth.

Crown Royal XR Extra Rare
Blended - Canada - 40.00%
7 That maple syrup taste works more like an additive than a natural aroma gained through maturation.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Russell's Reserve Rye
Rye - U.S.A. - 45.00%
8 A classic rye. Bartenders, this is what you need.

Russell's Reserve Small Batch Single Barrel
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 55.00%
8 A big untamed Bourbon which needs a dash of water to calm down. Not much though as it goes on the astringent side. I know there are fans of this style. Too fiery for me.

Wild Turkey 10 Years Old, Russell's Reserve
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 50.50%
8 Slightly austere and cerebral. One to sip while watching a video of an art-house movie.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Wild Turkey 17 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 50.50%
8 I like this very much, for its complexity and originality. As a bourbon? The useful phrase ‘something else' comes to mind.

Wild Turkey 8 Years Old, 101
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 40.00%
8 Yes it is big and wild, but far more sophisticated than the name suggests.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Wild Turkey 8 Years Old, 101
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 50.50%
8 A huge whiskey. Put together with style and sophistication, but still with all the robustness of a true bourbon. A classic, of course. A Clint Eastwood of whiskeys.

Wild Turkey 80
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 40.00%
8 No fancy tricks here but a big, complex, regular bourbon.

Wild Turkey American Honey
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 35.50%
7 ?A pleasant Cointreau-like liqueur. I would drink it on crushed ice or use it in a canard à l'orange sauce.

Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 50.50%
8 Wild Turkey in a coat and tie.

Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 50.50%
8 My descriptors make it sound like a dessert whisky, but it is also very appetising. Just a tad too sophisticated for me.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Wild Turkey Rare Breed
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 54.20%
9 This is more like a supercharged Wild One. Defiantly robust, but with Devilish charm. I love it.

Wild Turkey Rye
Rye - U.S.A. - 50.50%
8 The wildness of 101, tempered with the extra rye, makes for a very distinctive whiskey.

Wild Turkey Sherry Signature
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.00%
7 Bourbon and sherry? Is this allowed? I'm not sure it should be. I didn't order this, I ordered 101.

Wild Turkey Single Barrel 101 Proof
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 50.50%
7 Good dram, lacked the greatness you'd hope for with such age.
