Wild Turkey’s Longbranch is the tasty result of a collaboration between master distiller Eddie Russell, and the distillery’s creative director, who just so happens to be Matthew McConaughey. (Yes, that award-winning actor from Magic Mike, just in case you know another one.) It’s made with eight year old Wild Turkey bourbon, and brings together elements from Eddie’s and Matthew’s home states, using charcoal made of both Kentucky white oak and Texas mesquite to filter the liquid. The bottle bears the signatures of both men on the label, and with sweet citrus and spicy notes, it’s far more than… alright, alright, alright.
Nose: A sweet blend of caramel, smooth toffee lifted by spicy notes of nutmeg and oak.
Palate: Initially creamy vanilla, fading into buttery caramel, orchard fruits, a dash of lemon zest tempered by a drizzle of honey.
Finish: A pinch of black pepper appears on the finish, followed by an underlying buttery note and lingering drying oak.
