Wild Turkey 101 - 8yoBourbon Miniature
Wild Turkey 8 Year-Old has an exceptionally soft, but rich aroma for a high proof bourbon, due to quality at all stages of making and aging for 8 years. It's taste is powerful and rich with caramel, vanilla and notes of honey and brown sugar. The finish is very long, rich and full-bodied, powerful, yet soothing.
A brand that stands for American heritage and pride, Wild Turkey is the world's top-selling premium Bourbon. As it's advertising states: 'Not the latest thing, the genuine thing'.
Available in seven varieties, all Wild Turkey products are created under exacting conditions watched over by Master Distiller Jimmy Russell in the historic distillery at Wild Turkey Hill in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
Russell oversees a process employing the highest quality corn, barley and rye, combined with pure limestone water to form a unique whiskey of full-bodied taste and distinctly Kentuckian character.
Wild Turkey is distilled and put into new barrels at a much lower proof than most Bourbons. A costly method that results in less of the flavour being cooked out.
The barrels used are made of the finest new oak with the heaviest char available, imparting a smoother flavour and a deep amber colour.
