Wild Turkey Russell's Reserve 10 Years Old Bourbon Whiskey
750 ML (Standard)
Again quintessential bourbon flavors take the lead, with caramel and vanilla notes resting against tobacco and seasoned oak.A slight rye spice also weaves in, but allows the other flavors to show more prominently.The bourbon has a nice mouthfeel, albeit slightly thin.No different than the nose, there is nothing at all off-putting, and the flavors present themselves in a very straightforward and matter-of-fact way.
Strong aromas of vanilla and caramel come forward, with whiffs of aged oak, graham cracker, and leather.
Rye spice reaches its crescendo in the finish, leading the charge as the flavors climax in full force.The spice quickly fades, revealing vestiges of toasted marshmallows, leather, tobacco, and again, fairly prominent caramel and vanilla notes.It turns slightly dry as it fades away, but leaves a warming feeling in your chest.
