At the Wild Turkey Distillery, bourbon is a family tradition. Our Master Distiller Jimmy Russell follows his father and grandfather before him. His son, Eddie is a veritable newcomer, with just 20 years under his belt. Passing down the secrets of the distilling tradition from generation to generation is one of the things that has kept Wild Turkey true to the strictest standards in an era when so many others are willing to cut corners.
The bouquet features a woody/piney aromatic surface with dry scents of grain and resin beneath. The palate entry has a flash of corny sweetness upfront, then a whisper of butterscotch; the midpalate is full-bodied, sweet, oily, clean, and maple-like. Concludes with sumptuous tastes of dark honey and marzipan.
