I started off by jotting down notes on the nose, palate, finish, etc. Instead, my review will be more opinionated and less statistical.
Carries some reasonable notes, sweet vanilla and cherry with a little char. But those are broken down by a medicinal finish. It lacks the weight and big flavour of it's great elder, Wild Turkey Tradition 14 year old, who binds and balances with precision, a powerful punch. 81 one has a wonderful nose and a great first impression, but when that cough sirup break through, I am turned off. I will probably consider playing around with the elements of this whisky. Chilled, with soda water or soda, any other suggestions?
