Spicy aroma, with notes of cloves, oak, cinnamon and rye bread. More mellow flavor profile, with notes of caramel, creamy vanilla and toffee that lead to a finish accented by touches of pepper and whipped cream.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Bold aromas of toasted coconut, almond biscotti, stewed cherry and cinnamon bark rise from the glass. In the mouth, cinnamon takes the stage with underlying flavors of malted milk chocolate and toffee. The finish is wonderfully smooth. Chairman’s Trophy (Apr 2014)
Wild Turkey Forgiven Whiskey was created by accident when a distillery crew-member mistakenly mingled together a perfectly-matured, six-year old Wild Turkey Bourbon (78%) with a high-proof, four-year old Wild Turkey Rye (22%) (each had matured in American oak casks with a #4 char). After the mistake was made, Eddie Russell tasted the blend and quickly concluded that the exceptional whiskey should be brought to market, giving birth to Wild Turkey Forgiven. “I was mad when I first discovered our crew’s mistake,” says Russell, “but once I tasted it, all was Forgiven.”
