The kickin' chicken needs no further introduction, so let's get on with it. Matured for 6-8 years in heavily charred American oak barrels, the fiery nose offers no surprises. Vanilla cream, toffee and brown sugar are interwoven with cinnamon, tobacco and hints of acetone. Classic bourbon notes with a spicy punch of rye characterize the palate, rounded off by chamomile, nutmeg and orange jam. Re-emerging sweetness, ginger and a touch of mint linger in the wood-driven finish. If you don't mind the occasional bite, then Wild Turkey 101 is certainly a buy.

Comment:
A tremendously underrated bourbon. Many people probably denote the name, Wild Turkey, as a lower-shelf, mass-market brand, but don't be fooled. This is as good as many that cost 2 and 3 times more.

Comment:
I had low expectations before I tried this, but after the first try is one of my favorites. I love the peppery feeling , especially when I have a drum in a winters cold night.
