Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirits is basically Wild Turkey 101 aged longer and a single barrel.  It is aged about 9 years where the "regular" 101 is about 6 years.

This review is not specific to our barrel, but obviously there are similarities....
Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Stunningly complex, harmonious bouquet that includes aromas of pepper, ripe apple, saddle leather, pecan and caramel; a regal bouquet that needs to be approached slowly. In the mouth, melded flavors of candied almond, walnut, vanilla extract, red fruit and old oak dazzle the taste buds. Warm, biscuity, toasted aftertaste. A gold standard for Bourbon.
