I usually don't comment on the color of whiskey, but the color on this one is quite light which is unusual for a bourbon in this age bracket. The nose is nice and very Wild Turkey; it's got sweet candy and a good dose of oak. The palate opens with light candy and then some spice. It's hot for the abv, which is typical of more recent Wild Turkeys. The finish is where the oak comes back with a burnt wood/barrel char note.
n: great nose, ripe peach, smoked black cherry syrup, bit of a nice floral edge to make it interesting. Corn Pops cereal and brown sugar.
t: hard caramel and dried strawberry on top of a semi-sweet Corn Pop base. Middle has this interesting smoked cherry (flamed maraschino) and vanilla flavour. A charred wood (not tannic) and very cohesive/rounded finish that sweet at the tail. Nice and gentle with a lighter body, but still tasty.
