Sherry finishing isn’t common in Kentucky, but Wild Turkey aren’t the first to do it either. The fourth in the Master's Keep series, Revival comes with a mashbill of 75% Corn, 13% Rye and 12% Malted Barley. Inspired by the limited edition Wild Turkey Sherry Signature (circa 2000), it's a blend of 12-15 year old bourbons finished in 20-year-old oloroso sherry casks - reportedly, Eddie Russell went to great lengths to procure the barrels from Spain as the majority only hold sherry for three to four years. The result is a one-of-a-kind, 101 proof sipping whiskey boasting a typically bold Turkey bouquet with sweet peach fruitiness balanced by crisp oak, orange zest, new leather and whiffs of shellac. Exposure adds scents of berry muffin, rock lollies and trace peppermint. The oloroso is more prominent on the palate: Initially, pecan pie, rich vanillas and oak shavings underpinned by a fiery, gently bittersweet spirit. The finish sees lots of wood spice trailed by nutty, leathery, notes as well as pepper and hints of Seville orange and muddled mint, while the aftertaste is vibrant, spiced-up and beautifully sustained. The sherry-bourbon combination really works, and it's better again after 5-10 minutes breathing. With strong reviews from the likes of whiskyadvocate (below) and miniscule allocations, Revival is a must for any serious follower of this distillery. 1600 cases worldwide. 50.5% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Driven by lovely maple syrup and sweet bread pudding, this is like waltzing into a bake shop serving up warm sticky buns—all bready sweet, spice, and dried raisins—laced with toasted oak. The body is delightfully rich and viscous, with a generous jolt of sweetness and spice that pours long and satisfying. The sweet maple, candied nuts, dried berries, and white pepper spice strike a wonderful balance. 92 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Jeffery Lindenmuth (Fall 2018)

...Wild Turkey’s fruit-forward flavor profile and higher aged bourbon stock, mixed with a gentle barrel finish, results in a bourbon with balance and complexity.... nicely constructed and gets better the more time you spend with it. That tends to be the case with Wild Turkey limited releases: the devil is in their details. For someone looking for a gut-punch of flavor, this isn’t it. For the rest, there is a lot to appreciate for those willing to spend the time, effort, and money to do so. - breakingbourbon.com

Notes from the producers... aromas of cherry pie, raisins, citrus, nuts and a touch of oak. It delivers soft and creamy hints of spice and sweet tropical fruits on the palate and a long and lingering finish of dried apricots, honey and subtle spice.
