I experienced my first bottle of Wild Turkey 101 a few months ago… Have to say that I fell in love with it! Two fingers, two ice cubes and I’m set !!!
It’s surprisingly good, surprisingly cheap, and almost always available. Matt liked it a lot at this tasting, and we’ve both taken to it a lot more often since. Cheers!
