This is an older batch of the WTRB that was the precursor to the WT-03RB batches. It’s a NAS expression bottled at 54.2% ABV.
Nose: Classic older Turkey profile – sweeping vanilla with a lot of oak. Corn forward with cherries and butterscotch.
Palate: Sweet up front with vanilla – much more oak heavy on the rear palate with heavy barrel char and leather.
Finish: Tobacco and oak are dominant – fairly long finish and not as dry as I often get from Wild Turkey.
Rating: 90/100 – A solid older Turkey expression – too bad the newer rare breeds don’t stack up as well.
Value for the money: I got this for around $35 which is an easy buy, but on the secondary these go for around $100 I think which is overpriced. I’d pay up to $50-$60 for this particular batch.
