Wild Turkey Bourbon 101
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedFor the money you won't find many better pours. Pours light brown/amber. Nose is vanilla, coffee shop, peanut skins, and light oak. Taste is peanuts, more vanilla, baking spice, & light cherry. Finish is medium, a slight Kentucky hug comes in with cherry and peanut brittle. Solid
Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedThis is in my wheel house. Hefty proof with a beautifully dark color. Nose is rich and full with brown sugar, dark cherries, oak, and roasty nuts. Taste is again rich, vanilla, cherry, banana bread & more sweet oak. Finish is long and smooth, mouth coating with just a touch of Kentucky hug. I get some tongue coating over cooked banana bread in the aftertaste. Top shelf.
