WT_ForgivenBourbon Name: Forgiven

Distiller: Wild Turkey

What does the distiller say: An accidental blend of 78% Bourbon and 22% High-Proof Rye

Proof: 91

Age: Blend of ages

Year: 2013

Color: Golden copper

 

Nose: (89/100)

Neat -

Tim: (88/100) “Light, sweet, and flowery. The bourbon component is pronounced but you definitely get a very nice high rye nose. I Could smell this all day.”

Larry: (89/100) “Floral overtones are aromatic but not cloying. The rye comes through in perfect balance with the bourbon, offering vanilla and caramel with spicy notes of cinnamon.”

Water – A few to several drops of water did not appreciably change our observations.

Taste: (91/100)

Neat –

Tim: (90/100) “Brown sugar, giving way to cinnamon and rye spice on the mid-palate.”

Larry: (91/100) “Beautiful and balanced. Bread pudding on the front with rye rising to strike a perfect rye/bourbon balance mid-palate.”

Water – A few to several drops of water did not appreciably change our observations.

Finish: (90/100)    

Neat –

Tim: (89/100) “Long, and mellow with just the right amount of rye and cinnamon spice.”

Larry: (90/100) “Lengthy. The balance on the mid-palate carries clear through to the end. The residual flavors are wonderful. Greater duration is all that could have given this finish a higher rating.”

Overall Rating: (90/100)

Though some believe that Forgiven is more marketing than mistake, we have it straight from Mr. Jimmy Russell that Forgiven was, in fact, the most fortunate error in recent memory. Whichever you believe, you can rest assured that Wild Turkey Forgiven will not disappoint.

One Response to Review: All is ‘Forgiven’ at Wild Turkey

  • I don’t buy the label story at all, but that’s okay — a little bit of storytelling is part of what makes good bourbon an enjoyable experience. I don’t believe the original “swiped this stuff from the warehouse for a wild turkey hunt with the boys” either. And Eddie Russell doesn’t make mistakes.

    Too bad the whiskey itself isn’t all that great. If this really is a mixture of Wild Turkey Rye and Wild Turkey Bourbon, then the original products were below-par for the company. Wild Turkey rye has been a rich, deep-flavored whiskey that was practically definitive for Kentucky-style rye long before the current rye-craze. And even after it stopped being 8 years old, Wild Turkey bourbon is way more complex and flavorful than what went into this combination. It’s not AWFUL, mind you… just not as good as mixing WT rye and bourbon together yourself would be — not by a long shot.
