Good 'ol Wild Turkey 101
Still in New Mexico, and out of the good stuff (Laph, T10, and HP). I did not want to get Glenlivet 12 (or Bowmore Legend), or a blend which is all I can get around here , so thought I would get something from my youth, Wild Turkey 101. I read all the WT reviews here on the site and MJ and JM and others loved it. I used to drink it with Coke in my youth, but from the reviews it really sounded like it would be great neat or with ice. Boy was that right! Most bourbon that I like with Coke (Knob Creek, Maker's Mark) are just overwhelming with corn sweetness when straight, but WT 101 is just amazing. Almost like an SMS...and cheap as well.
Nose: Honey and heavy fruits.
Mouth: Chocolate, rye bread, honey
Finish: A bit spicy (rye maybe?), long.
101 proof, yet absolutely no alcohol tinge or burn. Just amazing, and the finish is even spicier with ice.
