    Re: BOTM 2/12: Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit

    I've only got one in the bunker, a sealed 1/9/09 bottling, signed by Jimmy, and based on what I've heard so far I guess it might as well just stay that way. I had some good success with dusty hunting back in the day but never found any dusty WTKS in my Chicago area hunts. I had to settle for my '91 and '93 Rare Breed finds instead .

    Re: BOTM 2/12: Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit

    Like many others I love the older pewter and dark wood bottlings but the new stuff leaves me flat. It is just too young for my tastes.

    I'm glad I have scads of 90s era KS and RR101 put up to tide me over until WT has enough aged stock on hand to do the label justice again.

    I'm really enjoying this pour right now from a dark top. I bought this in Logansport, Indiana, and the guy behind the counter said it was probably the last bottle of anything they had from their previous location.

    I love old Turkey. These days its just another distillery.
    i agree with you about loving old turkey. however, i disagree with you about it just being another distillery these days. i think they still produce very good bourbon - even at the massive scale they churn out the stuff. is it as good as the old days? nope. but, it's still good.

    Re: BOTM 2/12: Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit

    For once I actually am able to comment on the BOTM in the current month

    Through the generosity of another member I recently acquired an embossed dark top from 05.

    I'd say it's actually a little subdued for a WT. Don't get me wrong, it's very typical of WT from the last 10 years or so, but just not as in your face. It's also got a nice, clean, refreshing finish.

    Overall I think I like it slightly better than the current Rare Breed but not as well as older RBs I have tried. I haven't bothered with the newer WTKS bottlings because you guys have scared me off.

    Re: BOTM 2/12: Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit

    I wish this wasn't so impossible to find in Wisconsin! We have the other WT products, but never any Kentucky Spirit. I drove to Binny's in IL this week to pick up my first bottle. Only time i've tried it was at the distillery and hadn't fully developed my taste for WT. To say I am excited to try it again would be a huge understatement.

    Side note... also have a bottle of American Spirit on the way which I am also wildly excited for!

    Are you kidding me?? WTKS lounges on the shelves of Otto's, Discount Liquor, Ray's, Consumer... It's easy to find.

    I'm enjoying WTKS as a regular pour. Decent juice at a decent price. I'm a little surprised there isn't more discussion about it,
