Wild Turkey American Honey loses track of the taste of both the bourbon AND the honey

I love Wild Turkey bourbon, so I was rooting for American Honey to be a honey. It wasn't. A lovely straw yellow gold in the glass, the mouthfeel was thick as syrup. The initial taste was simple syrup. By midpalate we had a medicinal lemony sweetness that didn't taste like either bourbon or honey at all. Aftertaste was all citrusy sweetness. It wasn't undrinkable. I could see putting it into cola (particularly Pepsi, which has a lemon aromatic). However the lack of bourbon taste and the failure to capture the taste of honey disappointed me. Something with the "Wild Turkey" name should taste like Wild Turkey bourbon.
