From the makers of Wild Turkey Bourbon, this lovely liqueur is honey-sweet at first sip, but it braces up with a whisper of alcohol. As the sweetness fades away, it leaves behind pretty honeysuckle and vanilla notes on the long finish. Enjoy this on the rocks or mixed.

Medium amber, with bright flavors of orange marmalade, honey, and bourbon. Rich and harmonious with a clean finish. After-dinner drink.

The honey/amber/goldenrod hue is pretty and unblemished. The first inhalations detect distant scents of honey, baked bread, and corn meal; as with most liqueurs, aeration doesn’t particularly alter the aromatic profile, except in this case to add a citrus note. The palate entry is pleasingly balanced and not the least cloying; at the midpalate stage, the flavor profile features integrated tastes of honey (natch), spice, and lemon zest. finishes clean, balanced, and very enjoyable. The citrus element is what makes this liqueur recommendable because it’s the citrus that counters the honey and the bourbon. Far better than the ghastly and clumsy previous incarnation.
