A blend of 13 and 16 year old bourbon barrels
Color: Golden Amber
Nose: Caramel and vanilla sweetness up front along with a light, citrus-orange zest. It's an elegant and complex nose with a floral bouquet, black pepper spice, and toasted oak rising from the glass.
Taste: Initial sweetness that transitions to a thick and spicy mouthfeel. It's well balanced with honey, vanilla, brown sugars, cayenne and black pepper.
Finish: A medium finish with a delicate sweetness, rye spice, and mature oak.
Conclusion: This is hands down the best Wild Turkey bourbon I have ever tasted. Jimmy's son Eddie hand selected and blended this bourbon and it makes me really excited for his future releases. Diamond Anniversary bourbon is a very drinkable whiskey that hits all the high points of what you'd expect from a great bourbon. When I bought the bottle, I was initially disappointed that it was not 101 proof (come on, WT 101 is THE brand), but this certainly exceeds my expectations.
My Rating: A (Great)
