I found this gem while traveling in Florida and had not seen it elsewhere so when I learned it was from Frank-lin I brought it to the hacienda to give it a shot (pun intended). Wildcatter is aged 8 years and of unknown Kentucky origin and IIRC it was around $35. At 90 proof I found it best with a cube and it was a nice glass, not overly complex, but the cube tamed the beast. The flavor is filled with brown sugar, caramel, spice, earth, char, and leather. I typically find anything from Frank-lin worth of finding a spot in my bar and this bottle did not disappoint. I don’t know at this price point if I will bother with it again because there are more complex Bourbons in the same price point, but if someone offers me a glass I’ll throw in a cube and sit back and relax. If you find it give it a whirl and let me know what you think!
