I wasn't overly impressed, but I think Wild Turkey fans will like it fine. Outside of some Russell's Reserve Single Barrels (particularly store picks), I am mostly meh on WT. Based on reviews, I was expecting it to taste like Russell's Reserve, but I thought it tasted more like WT Rare Breed.

As a group, I prefer Mashbill #2, but that being said, GTS is my favorite Mashbill #1 and better than any of the Mashbill #2s.

Also, the EHT Four Grain and the EHT Rye are quite tasty, but obviously different mash bills than the rest in the 1st pic.

I let my 2017 EHT 4G go last month, for $540. Today, they are going for over $800 and change. Sure wish I would’ve hung onto it! I’m betting within another week or two, they’ll be going for over $1k.

Yeah, the meteoric rise of the EHT 4G has made me wish I hadn't passed on a couple bottles for $300 at an over-priced liquor store 2 years ago.

Dude, Iím telling you itís not. Donít fall for the marketing. Itís not a good bourbon.

And I spent $0 on my Four Grain. Traded two W12 1.75L for it when the 4G came out and before prices when crazy.

4G is one I will never try but Iím not sure I could appreciate it. W12 is just plain hard to find in any size. Recently found a bottle of Eagle Rare and Willet for retail and was pretty happy about that.

Hard to complain about this one. Hard to pick between it and EHT single barrel so far. May have to blind test them. GTS does edge out the SFTB though

Whats a good bottle(s) to buy for somebody wanting to collect something that may worth having 10 years from now? I'll post a picture of some of the stuff I've picked up, just looking for something more. Some of the bottles I got are for holding onto and others of course are just for drinking or taking to a nice hunting camp.

Lets see what you got and we can make a few recommendations.. it's been difficult to easily find nice bottles because of all the allocations and these days & people are willing to pay crazy amounts of money for just about anything good or especially very good stuff.. great group of whiskey and bourbon drinkers and collectors here to help!
