Thanks for the responses guys. I ended up in a liquor store with a mediocre bourbon selection (actually, they had large gaps on the shelves in the bourbon section, they were sold out or had discontinued alot of stuff I had seen there on earlier trips). They did have a sale on Wild Turkey 101, so I bought a bottle (going against most of your advice to try a wheat bourbon!). The WT was a little overwhelming the first few sips, definitely has a "bite" I guess you could say (the high proof?). But its growing on me, its still alot smoother than I expected. Has that sweetness I like and also kinda spicy(?)
