Limited to 96 Bottles
Selected by Whisky Hunt Australia
With Australia being the #1 market for Wild Turkey outside of the US, many thirsty Turkey fans have been waiting for this one.
Matured in the deepest No. 4 “alligator” char American White Oak barrels, Master Distiller, Eddie Russell, has hand selected the most complex and perfectly rounded barrels found in the old wooden rick houses, situated on Wild Turkey Hill.
Aged to perfection, only 25 of these special barrels have been made available worldwide!
Kentucky Spirit Private Barrel no 21-0084 was hand selected by Master Distiller Eddie Russell at the peak of its maturity due to its unique and vibrant flavour profile and has been bottled at Wild Turkeys signature 101 proof.
With new make liquid put into the barrel the day after Boxing Day 2012, the prime position within level 4 of Rickhouse F has helped to bring out the exceptional nose, taste and finish that is unique to this barrel alone. As Eddie Russell states "Aromas of toffee and cinnamon expand into complex flavours of cinnamon and banana leading to a short sweet finish of caramel and toffee notes. A special and unique bourbon worth celebrating". And it was for this uniqueness that Whiskey Hunt Australia has hand selected barrel no 21-0084 as our Private Barrel.
Nose: Malt, cereal, pie crust.
Taste: Peanut, caramel, vanilla.
Finish: Easy and sweet, nutty, vanilla, hints of chocolate.
