Description

Nose

A strong blend of toffee and caramel with a hardy amount of alcohol scent is present. Spice and vanilla provide a nice base with additional layers of toasted oak and butterscotch. Overall it’s very likeable with its layers of sweet notes that hit with the perfect intensity.

Palate

Sweet notes of vanilla, maple, and cinnamon are nicely contrasted with oakiness, spice, and char. Like all of Wild Turkey’s bourbons, the company does an excellent job of balancing flavors and keeping the sweet/spice relationship in check. Wild Turkey is known for their high-rye mashbill and even in their “budget” bourbon, this flavor boldness is present.

Finish

The medium-length biting finish gives way to a slightly dry aftertaste. Spice, pepper, and oak dominate over the palate’s sweeter notes. The alcohol taste is definitely more noticeable in Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon than the company’s other brands. It might be too much for some drinkers while others may revel in its boldness.
