L Wild Turkey Rare Breed

External Review by NapaCabs.com:

This bourbon is a unique marriage of Wild Turkey 6-, 8- and 12-year-old stocks, which give the whiskey a rich, exceptional flavor that is remarkably smooth, considering its high alcohol content. It is assertive with hints of light oranges, mint, and tones of sweet tobacco that will remind you of your grandfather's pipe-bowl.

Originally established in 1855 as the Old Moore Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Wild Turkey is one of Kentucky's most famous whiskeys. It was purchased by the Ripy brothers in 1905. In 1940, executive Thomas McCarthy selected some 101 proof straight bourbon for a turkey hunt. The next year his friends asked him for "some of that wild turkey whiskey", and a brand was born. Austin Nichols purchased the company in 1970 and was purchased by the French drinks conglomerate Pernod Ricard in 1980. Although Wild Turkey's recipe remains a closely guarded secret, the company has revealed that it uses a higher proportion of malted barley and rye in its bourbons lending them more complexity and spicy pepper notes. It is distilled to 115 proof and aged in heavily charred barrels. Wild Turkey's line currently includes: -an 80 proof bourbon -an 86.8 proof bourbon -a 101 proof bourbon -8-year-old bourbon (101 proof) -12-year-old bourbon (101 proof) -Kentucky Spirit, a single-barrel bourbon (101 proof) -Rare Breed, a barrel-proof bourbon (108.4 proof) -a 101 proof rye whiskey -American Spirit, a 15 year old bourbon (100 proof) -American Honey, a bourbon-based honey liqueur (71 proof) Read less

Wild Turkey Rare Breed is a "barrel-proof bourbon," meaning it is bottled directly from a variety of barrels at the proof it reaches in those barrels, with no added water to lower the proof or dilute the flavor.

The finish is long, warm and nutty and lingers in the mouth with hints of hot peppers and well-toasted whole wheat bread.
