Wild Turkey 81 Proof

A lower strength bourbon from Wild Turkey, bottled at 81 proof (40.5% abv) and created by the associate distiller Eddie Russell, the son of master distiller Jimmy Russell. This has a high rye content in the mash bill and is aged in casks with a heavy char - the result of which is huge flavour and complexity without the same heat as the 101 proof.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose A spiced, oaky nose with vanilla fudge, rye spices and coffee beans.

Palate Rich and thick, notes of caramel, manuka honey and fudge, hints of rhubarb and custard sweets and oily espresso beans.

Finish Caramel and coffee, hints of Black Forest honey and Hot Cross Buns. Charred and spicy.

Overall A fabulous bourbon with oodles of complexity…

Reviews for Wild Turkey 81 Proof
Between Wild Turkey 81 & 101
In my opinion, Wild Turkey 81% bourbon has a more smoother taste and for that reason. Wild Turkey 81 Bourbon wins hands down.
So if you wish to have a pleasant evening..

Better than I thought..
It's been awhile since I drank 101 but decided to go for this after reading a review. This is not a watered down version of 101 but a animal in irs own like. I was surprised and after reading why it's been given extra flavour by charring unlike beast 101 it'll still kick you in the balls!

Love this.
Strange, but I actually prefer this to the 101. There are a lot of similarities between the two and whilst this may not have the complecity of 101, it is smmoth. Parma violets and sweet fruit on the nose, golden clarity in the mouth with a decent sweet finish.

Doesn't work at all
The alcohol flavour is so strong that won't let you taste any notes. You can use it for mixing, but then again, there are better options even for that.

Good but 101 works better for me.

Very smooth
Very good. Never really put much of an effort to get to know or try Wild Turkey but my wife got me a bottle as a gift this past year. I was impressed with its flavor and balance. The whiskey doesn’t try to be too many things or overpowering in any particular way. Seems like the distiller knows what works and sticks to just being great at 3-4 different flavors without coloring outside the lines.

Nose: I picked up vanilla, wood and banana

Palate: Sweet caramel, more vanilla and burnt sugar. Creamy. No burn. The wood fades a bit over time.

Finish: Very little burn, some black pepper.

As the summary says, it’s very smooth and enjoyable. I drank it neat with a few whiskey stones to keep it cold and let it breathe for ten minutes before drinking. Flavor didn’t change much over time, consistently smooth...wood wore off a bit after about twenty minutes.

Great whiskey!

It's ok
Bought on offer for £17 and would say it's probably worth that price.
The 101 is my usual go to bourbon so this seemed a bit lacking in comparison. Not bad but lacking in mouth feel and kick.
