Wild Turkey Spiced Bourbon

Wild Turkey has launched Wild Turkey Spiced Bourbon, a new spiced bourbon which claims to be the first of its kind hailing from the “Island of Kentucky”.

The spiced whiskey is meant to be sipped neat over ice or used in mixers such as cola or dry ginger ale.

On its own, the 43% ABV spirit has a nose of vanilla, caramel, subtle spice and oak which develop on the palate with a marked sweetness punctuated with cinnamon, vanilla, clove and a hint of cardamom. When mixed with cola, the vanilla and spice notes are enhanced which make it more suitable to drink with a mixer. In short, Wild Turkey Spiced Bourbon is not a sipping whiskey.

Spiced spirits are often seen in the domain of rums, and the use of spice in bourbon is an interesting move for the category. If you’re a fan of Wild Turkey bourbon, give the spiced spirit a go. After all, variety is the spice of life.

Wild Turkey Spiced Bourbon is available in a 700ml bottle for a RRP $49.99AUD.
