Wild Turkey 8 Year Old vs New Comparison
Wild Turkey 8 Year Old vs New
Wild Turkey 8 Year has a long history
How do they compare?
And the winner is...
Apart from the huge difference in fruitiness and sweetness, the oak and spice feel different. Today’s version has a more burnt, grassy, and nutty oakiness that I’ve also found in Master’s Keep Revival and 17 Year Bottled in Bond, Rare Breed Non Chill Filtered, and Wild Turkey 101. It also has a slight astringency that I found in 17 Year Bottled in Bond, and I’ve never liked it. It feels more rough, heavy-handed, and unrefined.
I have far too much fun writing about whiskey and singlehandedly running The Whiskey Shelf to bring you independent, honest, and useful reviews, comparisons, and more. I’m proudly Asian American and can speak Cantonese, Mandarin, and some Japanese.There are no sponsors, no media companies, and no nonsense. Support The Whiskey Shelf by Buying Me A Shot.
