Wild Turkey Cheesy Gold Foil is – pun intended – the gold standard for all things Wild Turkey. Or at least it was until the Russell’s ’98 and 2002 came along and dethroned it. A 12-year-old version of the reliable Wild Turkey 101 released for the American market in the mid-late 80’s through the early 90’s this bourbon delivered on its golden marketing and quickly became beloved by Wild Turkey fans.
Tthe dense dark fruit and oaken aroma that entices the nostrils and starts the mouth watering for what’s next. The complex layers of oak, dark fruit, dark sweets and spice that create a rustic sweet character that dances across the palate. The lingering sweet oak fade that lasts longer than it should, but still not long enough. The perfect balance of everything and the warm oily feel that ties it all together.
