Russells Reserve, although this is pending further investigation of Kentucky Spirit, though it seemed to resemble RR a lot during my limited tastings. . .
It was a hard choice between Kentucky Spirit and Wild Turkey 12yo. I went with KS because of its availability and price. Both are superior bourbons.
Is it still possible to get the 12 year in KY?
I know of a couple of places that had a bottle or two on the shelves as of a couple of weeks ago. I imagine you will be able to find the odd bottle here and there for a couple of years.
I cast my vote for RB, however I am curious to what my feelings would be after a thorough tasting of the 12yo? I have just found/acquired the old gold labeled bottle. I'm anxious to find one of the current 12yo bottlings at a fair price. I've seen it once around here, and it went for $75.00. I may wait a little longer. See ya, H'wood
Let's settle this. We all bring a different bottle of WT to the festival, line 'em up at the tasting table and put them to the test. It'd be nice if we can find the rarest Turkeys such as Legend (Marvin?), Freedom, 1855, Stampede, and the 17 yr-old Ltd. Edition (Mark?). I got a 1970s bottle of the 8y old which may surprise many of you (much better than the 8y old available at duty free shops now).
I'm partial to the 12y, but let's not kid ourselves -- this will be The Mother of all bourbon taste challenges...may well end up in a draw. Bring many pants.
What say ye?
Count me in! Though I will probably only be able to bring the KS or the 12yo. You mentioned a few there that I had never heard of. Oh, the wonderful world of the Turkey is ever expanding
Taste has got to go to Rare Breed. For overall taste and value, I am leaning towards Russell's Reserve. I'd love to participate in a Wild Turkey Flight!!!
Hi all you bourbon drinkers,
Save your cash,if you want a bottle of WT 17Y to drink at the festival this
year I think I can still get it for around $120.I will try to make it to the
festival. Any other bottles in mind you guys want to drink?
