Drink Review: Wild Turkey American Honey
By Mike Thayer
Here's another fun shot to enjoy over the holidays!
Blended and flavored whiskeys continue to be red hot in popularity, consumer demand for brown spirits remains on the rise with American Whiskey in particular seeing some phenomenal sales growth.
Regular readers know that I am a fan of flavored whiskey, I've always got a bottle of something in my freezer for a chilled shot or flavored specialty in the liquor cabinet to enjoy on the rocks. My favorite in all this tasting fun so far, has been Ole Smoky Peanut Butter flavored whiskey. It's BETTER than Skrewball!
Today's review is a taste of honey!
Bottled as a liqueur, here's the description of Wild Turkey American Honey from the bottle: Exceptionally smooth liqueur blended with pure honey and bourbon whiskey.
With a proof of 71 and aged 4 years, this blend of bourbon and honey has a great, fragrant nose, you get that sweet whiff of honey right away in taking the cap off the bottle. The mouthfeel is rich and flavorful, delivering the honey in front followed by notes of vanilla from the Wild Turkey finish.
Costing me about $14 for a 350ml bottle, I'm giving Wild Turkey American Honey 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. It's a bit pricey but it's quite delicious especially over ice. A repeat buy, I also look forward to cooking with this, the blend of bourbon and honey will lend itself well to a number of dishes!
