Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Campari America LLC ~ Wild Turkey Distillery

AROMA: Lots of aged character. Sweet and woody with notes of dark dried fruit like cherry or plum and confectionary notes of honey, chocolate, caramel, nougat and brown sugar throughout. TASTE: Sweet and warming. Dried dark fruit notes complete with charred confectionary notes of charred marshmallow or burnt brown sugar. Smoky campfire notes enhance the finish on the palate. FINISH: Warming, long and lingering, this finish does not give up.
