Wild Turkey Forgiven Special Edition Rye & Straight Bourbon Batch 302 700ml
The nose is honey-sweet with touches of fudge, caramel, vanilla, and a hint of oakiness. The taste of the Wild Turkey Forgiven Special Edition Rye & Straight Bourbon Batch 302 starts off sweet, then turns spicy with pepper, cinnamon and a slight smell of clove. As the spices fade in the background, honey, fudge, and vanilla notes come to the forefront. The finish is smooth and long with lingering spices and hints of honey and dark chocolate.
After the success of the original Forgiven, where the team at Wild Turkey accidently pumped Bourbon into the Rye Whiskey tank, Master Distillers Jimmy and Eddie Russell gave it another go -this time intentionally. Calling it Wild Turkey Forgiven Special Edition Rye & Straight Bourbon Batch 302 they used a slightly different set of whiskies and went about making a more refined version of the original Forgiven.
