One of my favorite whiskies this season was a fairly new release from Wild Turkey. No, that’s not a misprint. I’ve blocked out the bad spring-break memories when I overindulged on shots of Turkey. This 100-proof, fifteen-year-old bourbon was created by the brand’s master distiller Jimmy Russell and his son Eddie, and the multigenerational effort paid off in one supersmooth bourbon with just a hint of spice. Perfect for sipping on a chilly, almost-spring night.
$125 at LeNell’s, 416 Van Brunt St. nr Van Dyke St., Brooklyn; 718-360-0838.
