Proof66 Notes

Wild Turkey 81 is a recent launch of rye whiskey from Austin Nichols. In keeping with their famous and widely known "101" whiskeys, this is a milder proof of "81" (as opposed to the more traditional 80). As a rye, its grain bill will be at least 50%+ of rye (a robust, spicy style of grain).

Was not a fan of this. Waited to finish the bottle to see if maybe it would grow on me or to make sure it didn't catch me on a day when my tastebuds were off. Nice spice, but the finish left an odd taste on the palate. Passable in an old fashioned with a little extra sugar. This was a few dollars more than the Jim Beam Rye and not nearly as good. For a few dollars less, I'll take the Beam.

Doesn't seem to have the grazzy kick that other ryes do, but it's a solid whiskey.
