Wild Turkey 81 Proof Bottling Note

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.

    it was okay

    I get some oak notes at best, and maybe a tiny tinge of vanilla. thats about it, otherwise it just tastes like whiskey. Overall nothing special. I think I'll return to Buffalo Trace or Old Granddad

    Smooth and satisfying

    Canadaian rye drinker and can definitely say this has earned a spot in my house. Straight up or with ice.

    Builds up a Corn Syrup aftertaste

    By the end of the glass (I drink whiskey neat) It felt like I'd had a bit of corn syrup placed on the back of my tongue. I would drink corn syrup if it wasn't bad for me! It has a floral nose, with a hint of cinnamon. On the palate I get leather, again cinnamon and quite a sweetness. The finish is floral with a thick syrupy flavor (the corn syrup).
    This is my first bourbon as I've traditionally been a scotch drinker, but I'll definitely give some more bourbons a try.

    Шикарний бурбон за свою ціну! Нема чого переплачувати за Джек Деніелс. Аромат в Дикого Індика більш приємний та дуже насичений. Не віддає ацетоном, як у Джека.

    As a Canadian rye drinker.

    It's good. I wouldn't call it a smooth rye. It's bold, hot, and with a good percentage of rye in the mash I certainly would say it earns it place on my shelf. The price point is right and it can be enjoyed straight-up but I prefer it in a rocks glass packed with ice and ginger ale. Nice work 'murica!

    Exceedingly Smooth and Creamy

    My absolute favorite whiskey. Being a fan of bourbon I tried many varieties before finding Wild Turkey. I prefer the 81, and feel the 101 comes on a little too strong for my tastes. As far as an in depth flavor analysis I cannot exactly speak in that manner since I'm not the savoring type. What I can tell you is that it goes down exceptionally smooth and is not excessively priced. I'd give it a five, but I'm certain their longer aged bottles, which I have yet to try, are probably better. I love to drink it with cream soda.

    Spicy Bourbons with great taste

    In Wild Turkey 81 you will experience - strong smell, caramel, vanilla, corn, cinnamon, oak, spicy!!!

    Flavors of caramel and vanilla mix with fragrant of corn. A very good punch of cinnamon red hot candy that gives very good experience. Taste is sweet with a solid balance of oak and spice character.

    Light caramel hits first at the front of the mouth before drying quickly. Cinnamon spice takes over and later , leaves with some heat of toasted oak and vanilla.

    On the glass this whiskey looks dark.
