Wild Turkey Forgiven

Wild Turkey Forgiven is a blend of six year old bourbon [78%] and high proof, four year old rye [22%]. The back story behind this product is that the Wild Turkey Distillery staff accidentally mixed the two whiskies.  When Master Distiller Eddie Russell tasted it, he deemed it "exceptional whiskey more than worth of bringing to the market", and thus "Forgiven" was born. It is bottled at 91 proof. 

Color: Amber

Nose: Vanilla, Ginger, Cinnamon, Rye Spice, Oak

Taste: Creamy Vanilla, Brown Sugar, Ginger, Spearmint, Clove, Oak

Finish: Short and Smooth. Brown sugar, oak, peppery. 

Conclusion: Personally, it matters not whether this is a true story or just a creative idea from their marketing team; I like the story and I like the whiskey. It is a limited edition offering (unless the distillery crew happens to make another mistake), so I suggest you pick it up if you can find it. 

My Rating: B (Good)
