    Re: BOTM 2/12: Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit

    Used to be a good pour but, alas, in recent years it seems to have gotten younger, thin, and lacking complexity. IMO, no longer worth the money.

    Now some dusties, on the other hand....

    Re: BOTM 2/12: Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit

    I love my dark top from October, 2003. I'll struggle to replace it. I like the current light top, but I love the dark top version(s). I taste almonds, nutmeg upon entry, and a nice strong oak finish.

    I love the rare breed, I haven't had any KS that I can remember, this is why I don't see the reason to pay $10 more for something that I might not like any better.

    Unhappy Re: BOTM 2/12: Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit

    I was going to taste my old Kentucky Spirit yesterday afternoon and report on it here. But I became severely ill, so I'll have to postpone it.

    At first, I was afraid I had the flu, but after thinking more about my symptoms, I think it might be meningitis. I would rather have the flu. Last night was pure torture. I will make an appointment as soon as I can get through to the doctor's office, this morning.

    Re: BOTM 2/12: Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit

    Well the good news is that it is not the flu or meningitis. The bad news is that the doctor really doesn't know what it is. I have an elevated white blood cell count, so it is probably some bacterial infection, maybe diverticulitis.

    I feel quite a bit better, so far today. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.

    I bought my only bottle of KS a couple months ago. Its a dark top bottled '06. It has none of the upfront sweetness and is very smoky and woody.

    RB at $10 less, is the much better value and bourbon ..YMMV

    Yes, it's a shame. It used to be fantastic, now it's just a fancy bottle and a high price tag.

    I love old Turkey. These days its just another distillery.
