What's in a name? Wild Turkey 101 whiskey is called whiskey because it's produced in America. Were it from Scotland it would be spelled Wild Turkey 101 whisky, rather than whiskey.
The nose is quite subdued, yet there remains a beautiful toffeyed sweetness. Notes of toasty oak and melted vanilla ice cream, a touch of zesty citrus and butterscotch. The palate is full and rich with notes of cigar box sweetness, pepper, caramel, or ‘carmel’ should I say? Notes of honey on granary toast with a little melted butter. The finish is long and rich with spice and toast notes.
The nicest Bourbon I have tasted in my travels all over the world.

This is an excellent bourbon for its price point. It can be had neat and holds up well with mixers. Recommended.

There's only one major problem with this whiskey and that's this: at this moment in time, it's out of stock! C'mon Master of Malt, I wanted to order some of this!

For a well known mass market bourbon, WT is still an amazing product. Very consistent, good flavor profile with a nice spicy rye kick to it. Smooth and easy drinking. A dangerous bird indeed. While I have my fancy single barrels and small batches around, I still always keep a bottle of the bird handy.

The dirty bird is good stuff, but if you can find it pick up the Rare Breed edition which is bottled straight out of the barrell. It's about ten bucks more but worth it. Although Jesus 42 dollars for WT is crazy. That's 100% mark up from the US prices
Well, I must say its decent. But that's it. There's better in my opinion. Buffalo trace beats this hands down. Still worth a try but I don't see me buying this again.

I can only offer this review from the standpoint of having sipped the bourbon over ice. I have not mixed it or had it in any cocktails.
That being said--I was not impressed. It's very strong and you start to a buzz after just a few drinks. The description on the label says that this bourbon offers "hints of vanilla ice cream, toffiness, butterscotch with notes of cigar box sweetness". The last part is the only thing that's right--taste like it was filtered through a cigar box--very oaky. I couldn't really find a review before purchasing so thought I would contribute. I typically drink Jamison, Johnny Walker, Bushmills. This is not even in the ballpark.
