Wild Turkey Longbranch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750mL WE92 Points-Wine Enthusiast
Longbranch Bourbon was created in 2016 by Wild Turkey Master Distiller Eddie Russell and cultural tastemaker Matthew McConaughey. United by a shared curiosity and love of great whiskey, Eddie and Matthew wondered what would happen if a Kentucky Bourbon took a road trip to Texas. Their creation - an 8-year-old, small batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon, refined with American Oak and Texas mesquite charcoals - was named Longbranch, a reference to an extension of a hand or an invitation for friends to become family.
TASTE: A sweet bouquet upfront with subtle notes of nutmeg and toffee. Spice and a hint of oak provide a sturdy middle, before giving way to a smooth Kentucky Straight Bourbon finish.
AROMA: Caramel, vanilla, toffee with hints of oak.
FINISH: A smooth finish with a pop of heat. Caramel trails off into a subtle smoky goodbye.
PROCESS: An 86 proof small-batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon aged 8 years and refined with American oak and mesquite charcoals.
