    Re: Wild Turkey 12

    A quick introduction as I was a long time lurker and relatively new to the bourbon scene.

    I just picked up a WT 12 split label a week or so ago and tried it for the first time tonight. I have to say that this might be my new regular. i was drinking a lot of PVW 20, ER 10 and WT RR90, but I believe this is my new favorite. The local store has about 5(OCT 97) of these left and tomorrow they will be gone. They are about $45 but it is only money.

    This thread gave me the inspiration to try it and I will be bunkering these for a while. Thanks for all the insight on this forum.

    Welcome to the site, Seg. Are you sure it's THE 97? Not sure you want to get more of that one. If there are any Splits hanging around, it's usually the 97's. For a good reason...I'd take a pass on those.

    $55 is okay. Not bad, not great.
    Sorry this post is a day late and about $10 bucks short.

    Sounds about right.
    $36-55 is the current price in Japan.

    Good to see you BGJ....

    $35-55 for the current 12 yr
    How much for the two diff versions of the spilt label, gold foil and the complete gold covered 12 yrs?

    I have seen the full goild foil skin on auction there for $100'ish, but I have not really looked much.

    Oh no, what's wrong with the 1997 split-label WT12's? I've only got two in my bunker that I've yet to open, and they are both from 1997 (02/06/97 & 10/02/97). The only time I've ever had the split-label WT12 is at Randy's, and I thought it was very good, some of the best WT I've ever had! Now I hear you saying this about the only two bottles that I have. I wish I hadn't read this. Maybe you're just joking because it's a new guy asking about it, yeah that's the ticket (me, telling myself: "Yeah, he was only joking...ha-ha").

    (I hope..)

    Hee, Hee. Yep, just playin', Gus. Your Splits are safe, and delicious. For some reason, felt like raising some rabble last night.

    Thinking around the 100-120 range.
    Seems to be a few floating around- gold label/ gold foil wrapped.
    But currently drunk and lazy.
    One hundred- one twenty there Spun.
    And good to see you 2/also
