Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Upon decanting, the Longbranch Bourbon reveals an appealing, deep amber color with a golden tinge—evoking shades of sunlit southern fields. The legs, running down the glass sides at a leisurely pace, indicate its well-balanced, robust character.
A multifaceted nose reveals an intricate tapestry of scents. Vanilla bean and caramel give way to lighter, airy notes of hay and sweet corn. Mesquite smoke, the signature aspect of the Longbranch filtration process, leaves an unmistakable but tactful imprint.
A gentle sip introduces an array of complex flavors. The palate experiences an immediate flourish of caramel and honey, accompanied by ripe orchard fruits like apple and pear. The mesquite influence subtly permeates the profile, bringing forth earthy and smoky tones that perfectly balance the sweetness. The rye component in the grain bill introduces a delightful spice, both piquant and invigorating.
Long and warm, the finish celebrates the mesquite nuances, amplifying their impact without overshadowing the classic bourbon characters. The tail end leaves a delicate blend of toasted oak, vanilla, and a tinge of pepper, making for an elegant and lingering conclusion.

This is a bourbon that invites contemplation and conversation alike. Whether you prefer to enjoy it neat, on the rocks, or as part of a complex cocktail, its nuanced flavors and balanced profile will deliver an experience that transcends boundaries. Its balanced complexity and unique mesquite undertones make it a bourbon not just for special occasions, but for all seasons and all sensibilities.
I found this to be very bland and uninteresting. No bad flavors just not much flavor at all. Disappointing for a Wild Turkey product. Will not buy again despite the low price. Just buy some 101, far better.
Very good & interesting bourbon. I like the slight mesquite edge…nice with a splash of water…very attractive price point.
