    Wild Turkey 12

    With WT12 is it just a case of if you see it, buy it? Which of the other WT products is it closest in profile to?

    Probably Tribute or WT American Spirit; both at 15 YO.

    Maybe Gilmanize 1/2 WTAS and 1/2 WTRR 101?

    Thanks mate, I have had WT101, WTAS and RR101 so now I sort of know what to expect with it

    Wade was right on his first choice, the 15 is very close in style to the 12 Gold label.
    The 14 and 16 yr versions are similar to each other, as well, IMO. The KS didn't strike me as all that interesting when I tried it once. I might have to revisit that one.

    Troy,
    I would imagine the WT 12 you are talking about is the current duty free offering you can buy?

    I would suggest Wade's Gillmanization suggestion of 1/2 WTAS and 1/2 RR101 would be close, infact I might try it tonight and compare!
    The WTAS in my opinion is better quality than the current 12yo being offered duty free. In saying that though, it is a very good offering from WT.

    Been out of the loop lately. But if I'm reading this right, if you see WT 12yo, definately get it. If you don't like it, someone here will gladly take it off your hands. I have three of these, and due to chaos in personal life, I've been unable to try it, and therefore can't compare to others. But if you do come across this very rare find, don't hesitate to pick it up!

    P.S. Okay, just noticed mentioned of this duty free stuff. I didn't know WT still made the 12yo for anyone anywhere. Disregard the above. I'd better spend some more time here before I post next time. Sorry.

    I would gather its the same as the duty free one. Looks almost identical to the 8 year old 101 but states " Aged 12 Years " and comes in a tube as opposed to the boxed 8 year old.

    There were (at least) three renditions. The first is called the "cheezy gold foil", then there was a "split label" and also a "full label". I understand that the gold foil is the best of the three. Gold Foil is no longer available but split label or full label may still be found in some duty free shops. All have tubes.

    Re: Wild Turkey 12

    Do all of the WT12's have date stamps on them?
    I have a WT12 split-label (I found at a store, not in a duty free shop) that has a small date (02-06-97) stamped on the plastic neck wrapping.
