Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary Bourbon. Photo ©2014 by Mark Gillespie.Eddie Russell created this Bourbon from casks 13 to 16 years old in honor of his father Jimmy’s 60th anniversary at Wild Turkey in 2014, and the result has a nose thats smooth, mellow, and creamy with hints of oak, honey, vanilla, nutmeg, clove, and a touch of pepper. The taste is spicy, but still smooth with notes of pepper, clove, nutmeg, vanilla, dark chocolate, and honey notes with good balance and complexity. A few drops of water brings out more chocolate and amps up the other flavors as well. The finish is long, spicy, and smooth with softly fading pepper and clove notes along with touches of honey and oak. Excellent! (May, 2014)
